1. Students will not be allowed to ride a different bus or leave a bus at any place except his/her regular discharge point unless he/she has a written statement from his/her parent or guardian and presents it in the school office on the morning of the change.
2. The bus driver is in charge of the bus and its riders at all times. The driver will report any violations of the Code of Student Conduct and the Board Policy Manual to the principal/assistant principal or their designee.
In addition to these guidelines, the following rules apply specifically to the school bus:
