School bus transportation is available to and from school for students who live within their school attendance area and who live more than the following distances from school:
Elementary (K-5): at least one mile from school.
Middle school (6-8): at least a mile and a half from school.
High school (9-12): at least two miles from school.
Exceptions may be made for students with special needs or where walking may be hazardous. School bus route information is available on the school district’s Transportation website. For more information, call 425-356-1306.
BEHAVIOR ON THE BUS
Students are expected to demonstrate safe behavior on school buses so the bus driver can concentrate on driving. A video/audio system is installed in most buses to help monitor the behavior of bus riders. Transportation privileges can be revoked for students who repeatedly violate bus safety and behavior standards.
LIMITED TRANSPORTATION ROUTES
The school district may operate transportation on designated limited routes when there are unsafe travel conditions due to weather. Check local media outlets and the school district’s website to determine if limited routes have been declared. Specific details about pick-up locations for limited routes are distributed to bus riders in the fall and are also available on the district’s Tranportation website.
ITEMS NOT ALLOWED ON THE BUS
Heavy, sharp, and bulky items are not allowed onto the school bus because they may present a hazard to other riders if there is an accident or if the driver is forced to make an emergency stop. Students may not bring any large items on board that would encroach upon or take over another student’s seating space. The following items are not allowed on a school bus:
Musical instruments in a case larger than 42 inches, by 12 inches, by 9 inches deep.
Food, drinks, or chewing gum.
Weapons (toy or real).
Live animals, including insects.
Flammable items, such as lighters.
If the safety of transporting an item is in question, the bus driver has the final authority to determine if the item is hazardous to transport.
INFORMATION AVAILABLE IN MULTIPLE LANGUAGES
Information about bus rules and limited-route information can be viewed in a variety of languages on the district’s Transportation website.
