Tips for Transportation:
Review school bus safety with your children regularly.
Wait for the bus a safe distance from the roadway.
Students should not approach the bus before the driver signals them to do so.
Parents are encouraged to accompany their child to and from the bus stop when possible.
Plan with your child what to do in the event of a no one home situation.
Be at the bus stop 5 minutes prior to bus arrival.
Parents or a designee of kindergarten students must be present at the bus stop to receive their children.

Kentucky state law forbids food and drink from being consumed by riders while on the school bus. Students may not carry on any item that they cannot hold in their lap including band instruments and school projects.  Cell phones, games, and other electronic devices may only be used with permission from the driver.

It is our goal to provide every child we transport with the safest and most reliable school transportation possible.  School bus safety is and should be a top priority for everyone including students, parents and schools to make each ride safe and enjoyable for everyone.
