Rules on the School Bus and Bus Stop

Safety is our number one goal for all students. If your child follows these simple rules they can assist us in keeping them safe.

  • Make sure your child is on time to the bus stop. (Have them out at the stop at least five minutes prior to their scheduled pick up time.)
  • Never run while trying to board the bus or when leaving the school bus.
  • Do not push or shove other students when boarding the school bus. (Always use the handrail when boarding a bus.)
  • While on the bus always remain seated in your assigned seats.
  • Never place your arms and limbs out of the window.
  • Do not yell while on the bus (yelling could distract the driver and cause an accident).
  • No eating or drinking permitted on the school bus.
  • No profanity (this includes abusive language, obscene or profane gestures to students and driver).
  • Keep backpacks and musical instruments out of the isle on the bus. Keep the aisles clear.
  • Keep your hands, feet and legs to yourself.
  • Absolutely no fighting on the bus or at the bus stop fighting is an automatic suspension from the school bus.
  • No smoking, drugs and or alcohol of any kind on the bus .
  • While at the bus stop please wait 10 feet away from the curb or roadway.
  • Always cross at least 10 feet in front of the school bus. (Wait for the driver to signal you before crossing the road.)
  • Always listen to the bus driver and follow his/her instructions.
  • Do not throw trash or items of any type out of the bus.
  • Never crawl under a school bus. If you drop something when getting on or off the bus, DON’T PICK IT UP. TELL THE BUS DRIVER.
  • School buses shall be loaded or unloaded at established school bus stops only, unless an emergency dictates otherwise. Students shall load or unload only at their regular stop.
  • If your student needs to get on or off the bus at a different bus stop or ride a different bus. You must fill out a “Change in Drop-Off Form” in our office 48 hours prior to the change.
  • All rules are in compliance with Federal State and Los Lunas Schools board policy 9.1.5. We ask that, as parents, you ensure that your student/students know the rules on the bus and at the bus stop and follow them at all times. Riding a school bus is a privilege not a right.
