Transportation Information

Transportation details and bus passes are typically made available in PowerSchool in early to mid August prior to the start of school. Please keep in mind that due to ever-changing traffic conditions, it is impossible to maintain an exact time schedule. Students, therefore, should be at their assigned bus stop at least ten minutes prior to the time designated on the bus pass. Students must board and leave the bus only at their assigned stop. The districts strives to communicate bus delays of 15 minutes or longer. 
Parents and students should be aware that the Board of School Directors has approved the use of video cameras on Keystone Oaks School District buses. The cameras are used to document driver and passenger behavior in order to provide a safe environment for both the driver and the passengers. The Keystone Oaks School District will use video cameras on the buses. 

Please be aware of the following rules of conduct for all bus passengers as adopted by the Keystone Oaks School District Board of School Directors: 
Bus Conduct:
Proper behavior on a school bus is essential for the safety of all passengers. To assure the safety of all passengers, the Board has adopted this policy statement for Rules of Conduct:
  • Following the CDC order, universal masking will be required while on District transportation to and from school, sports, and activities. This includes all students and staff, regardless of vaccination status. 
  • Each student shall be seated immediately upon entering the bus.
  • No student shall stand or move from place to place during the trip. Students must keep their feet out of the aisle once seated.
  • Loud, boisterous, profane language, or indecent conduct, shall not be tolerated.
  • Smoking is prohibited on the bus. 
  • No items of any kind shall be thrown in or from the bus.
  • The bus driver has the same authority over a student, as does a teacher in the classroom.
  • Students must board and leave the bus only at their assigned stop.
  • Bus passes will be issued to all students and must be shown to the driver or school personnel upon request.
  • Vandalism to the bus will not be tolerated 
Violations of the above rules will be handled as outlined below:
FIRST OFFENSE: A warning will be given to the student. The principal will consult with the student and notify the parent. The principal will work with the driver to assign the student a seat on the bus for the remainder of the semester.
SECOND OFFENSE: Transportation privileges will be suspended for a specific period, or the student will be suspended from school. A parent conference will be held.
THIRD OFFENSE: Transportation privileges will be suspended for the remainder of the semester, or the student will be suspended from school. A conference will be held with parents to discuss the conduct of a student.
SERIOUS OFFENSE: (includes smoking and vandalism) Offenses of a serious nature that affect the health or safety of bus occupants or damage to the bus, will result in suspension from school even though the offense is a first infraction of the rules. Parents/guardians of students guilty of vandalizing a bus will be responsible for the cost of repairs to the bus.

The policies and rules listed above have been established for a safe and efficient bus transportation program. It is essential that you understand the rules and that your child understands and obeys them. These rules will be strictly enforced.
