transportation pickups and drop-offs are at designated neighborhood
sites. Students will not have to walk more than one-half mile
between their home and their pickup and drop-off site. Parents are
responsible for their child's safety until the child boards the bus
and once the child steps off the bus.
Kindergarten and special education students will not
be dropped off unless a parent, guardian or other responsible adult is
waiting for the student. If it is
determined that no one is waiting for a child, that child will be
brought to Giffen Memorial Elementary School, 274 South Pearl St., to
await parent pickup.
If a student
is to be picked up or dropped off at a relative's home, child-care
location or parent's workplace, parents must submit a
"change of bus stop" form at least three school days in advance of the
pickup/drop-off sites also must meet eligibility requirements (1.5 miles
form the school, etc.). Forms are available from your child's school.
