2019-2020 Student Transportation Information Form Guidelines
Bus transportation is a privilege that can be lost if behavior is unacceptable on the bus or at the bus stop.
MN Statute 123.B

Please review these guidelines to ensure safe transportation for all eligible students. Please read carefully as important changes have been made to the transportation policy. This Transportation Form must be completed and in the hands of the school or Fornshell Bus by July 15th. There is no guarantee that we can accommodate transportation once routes have been set for the start of school.

Bus Stop Assignment: For reasons of safety and security, students are allowed only ONE designated bus stop in the morning and ONE designated bus stop in the afternoon unless prior authorization is granted by Fornshell Bus. Multiple pick-up or drop-off spots are not permitted. A variable schedule is also not permitted. Transportation policy permits just one morning and one afternoon stop, with the same stop(s) five days a week and must be on a consistent basis.

Bus Stop Changes: Fornshell Bus must authorize any proposed changes to a student’s bus riding assignment or bus stop assignment. Bus drivers are not allowed to make changes to the bus stop location or the pick-up time. Bus stop change requests must be made directly to Fornshell Bus and changes need to be made at least 3 business days in advance.

Emergency Change Requests: All temporary changes in a student’s assigned bus or designated bus stop can be approved only by Fornshell Bus., and will be approved only in cases of family emergency. Due to regulations on capacity loads, students are not allowed to change bus assignments or bus stops to attend social events, lessons, jobs, parties or other non- emergency activities.

Daycare/Alternative Location: All students in daycare or that have an alternative pick-up/drop-off location are required to have a Transportation Form on file with the school and Fornshell Bus. This information is used to assign bus stops and for notification in case of an emergency.

Bus Stop Behavior: We strongly urge parents and daycare providers to supervise students at the bus stops. Unsupervised students are the cause of many bus stop problems and complaints.

Bus Safety and Discipline: School district policy on bus safety and handbooks are available. The
policy, rules and guidelines are reviewed by the teachers each year and are handed out by the bus drivers.

Bus Scheduling: Students should be at their assigned bus stops at least five minutes prior to the scheduled arrival of their buses. It is not unusual for buses to be running late the first couple weeks of school. This time lag is usually self-correcting shortly after the start of school. Buses may also run late due to rain, snow, ice, fog or traffic conditions. If a bus is running late, the bus will complete the route nonetheless and stop at every stop. Thank you for your patience in these situations.

Please call the Bus Garage at (218) 746-3770 by 7:00 A.M. if your child is not riding the bus. Failure to notify Fornshell Bus in these situations could result in loss of riding privileges.
