Bus Policy

These rules apply to students riding ALL buses.  They also apply when students are riding a bus during a class trip or school function.  Please review the rules with your child.

  • BE AT THE BUS STOP ON TIME.  You should not have to run to make the bus.
  • WAIT FOR THE BUS IN AN ORDERLY FASHION IN YOUR ASSIGNED AREA.  Pushing, shoving, or creating a disturbance might result in injuring someone or in being late for school.
  • TAKE YOUR SEAT IMMEDIATELY.  Remain seated while the bus is moving or when instructed to do so by the bus driver.
  • ENTER AND LEAVE THE BUS ONLY AT THE FRONT DOOR AND ONLY AFTER THE BUS HAS COME TO A FULL STOP. (In case of emergency, the driver may give you other instructions).
  • KEEP YOUR HEAD AND HANDS INSIDE THE BUS WINDOWS AT ALL TIMES.  Throwing objects, no matter how small, on the bus or out the windows is extremely dangerous.
  • SAVE YOUR LUNCH AND SNACKS UNTIL YOU ARRIVE AT YOUR DESTINATION.  Eating and drinking are not allowed on school buses.
  • AVOID SHOUTING AND OTHER LOUD NOISES.  In addition to disturbing others, loud noises could distract the driver and cause unsafe operation of the bus.
  • LEAVE THE BUS IN A QUIET AND ORDERLY MANNER.  Join your schoolmates in the schoolyard or go to the office if school has begun.
  • GET OFF AT ASSIGNED STOP.

Failure to comply with these rules may result in loss of bus privileges and/or further disciplinary action at school.

For Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in
battle, be our protection against the
wickedness and snares of the devil; may god
rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, o
Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of
God, thrust into hell satan and all evil spirits
who wander through the world for the ruin
of souls. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in
battle, that we may not perish in the fearful
judgement.

Saint Michael, first champion of the
kingship of Christ, pray for us.

God our Father, in a wonderful way you
guide the work of angels and human being.
May those who serve you constantly in
heaven keep our lives safe from all harm on
earth. Grant this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, pray for us.
