Students are responsible for knowing whether they are expected to ride the bus. The school is not responsible for determining whether a student is to ride the bus, or for finding students who are not at the bus at the designated time.
Parents are responsible for getting students to and from the designated pick up and drop off sites. Please arrive a little early! The bus will not be able to wait for students who are late. In the afternoons, if a parent is not present to pick up a student at the designated time, the student will remain on the school bus and be returned to Franklin, where he or she will sign in to Beyond the Bell. We ask for patience during the first few weeks as everyone becomes familiar with the route.
Students who ride the bus will sign a Bus Rider contract, agreeing to expected behaviors. Students who do not follow safe and respectful bus behaviors will not be permitted to ride the bus.
The bus is limited to 43 passengers. Please sign up here, and indicate the stop you will use. If we have more demand than spaces, we will prioritize ridership based on income & hardship. We will review responses and if we have more than 43 we will prioritize those that have signed up and begin creating a wait list.
