Bus Pick-up and Drop-off Policy
NELSD PICK-UP / DROP-OFF GUIDELINES
The following guidelines are in place in an effort to provide the safest transportation possible for all the students. Phone calls from parent(s)/guardian(s) requesting to change the pick-up or drop-off location of their child for a day are especially difficult because the message has to go through the office, to the teacher, to the student, to the bus driver … with no mistakes! Consistency in bus pick-up and drop-off locations is important for student safety.
Guidelines for bus pick-up and drop-off:
All bus stops must be arranged on a 9-week basis. The school needs a set schedule that does not change.
- Major emergency changes can be made if the transportation department and the school office are notified in writing one week in advance of the change.
- Changes requested by a phone call to the transportation office at 328-6562 or written notes to the school office will be approved only in emergency situations.
- Latchkey students may not ride the middle/high school buses except in cases of emergency.
- We must ask parent(s)/guardian(s) to solve temporary scheduling problems by arranging rides or supervision with relatives or neighbors. Once again the daily requests are very difficult to process … and any error can result in a child arriving somewhere he or she is not expected. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact your principal.
