Bus Procedures
Bus students will use the back entrance each morning and afternoon upon arrival and dismissal. Any changes in riding the bus must be approved by the bus transportation office (803-442-6106) and the principal. Only changes due to an emergency will be approved. The Bus Transportation Office and the principal must approve permanent changes for the remainder of the school year in advance. This request should be made in writing with the following information provided: 
  • The child's name and homeroom
  • How the child was going home previously
  • The new bus number
  • The name and address of the person of the home where the child is going
No child will be allowed to switch buses without written notification from the parent and approval from the bus transportation office. In the afternoon, if a student is returned 3 times, he/she will lose bus riding privileges for the remainder of the semester.


Rules for Bus Riders
Certain laws and regulations govern the operation of school buses. Bus conduct and student transportation are included in the Code of Student Conduct issued to each student.

Bus Safety
Bus transportation is a privilege rather than a right. Safety on the bus is the prime consideration. Order on the bus is a major factor. All students are expected to follow the direction of the bus drivers without hesitation. Certain rules and regulations are observed when riding the bus. These rules will be distributed to each student in the Aiken County Code of Student Conduct. Parents should review the rules with their children. Students who do not behave properly may be denied the privilege to ride the bus. Discipline problems on the bus will be handled at school. When a student's conduct requires suspension from riding the bus, it is the sole responsibility of the parent to transport the student. Students suspended from riding a bus may not ride another bus. The parents must comply with regular school hours. If the student is repeatedly tardy or not picked up on time during the bus suspension, the bus suspension may result in school suspension. If the misconduct causes the driver not to finish a trip, he/she may return to the school so immediate contact may be made with student's parents or he/she may stop to telephone the principal or bus supervisor.
