Parent Pick Up & Drop Off Procedures
Arrival and Departures Procedures
Car riders are to be dropped off & picked up in the front of the school in the school drop-off/pick-up area.
Students may enter the building starting at 6:45 a.m. where they will report to their grade level holding area. Breakfast is available for all students to purchase and eat in the cafeteria. School is dismissed at 2:35 p.m. Students should be picked up no later than 3:00 p.m. if they are not attending an after-school activity supervised by a staff member. After the first instance of late pickup, additional consequences will be assigned. These guidelines are for the purpose of keeping your child safe.
Students needing to leave school before the end of the school day must be checked out prior to 2:00 p.m. After 2:00 p.m., students must wait until dismissal time.
Bus Privileges and Rules
Riding the bus is a privilege that KISD offers to all students. Each bus has a list of rules that all students are expected to follow that will ensure each individual a safe ride to and from school. When these rules are violated, students will be placed on probation or suspended from riding the bus.
Follow These Rules to Keep Your Riding Privileges:
Respect each other.
Observe the same conduct as in the classroom.
Cooperate with the bus driver.
Keep the bus clean. Food and drinks are not allowed.
Stay in your seat.
Keep head, hands, and feet inside the bus.
Bus drivers may assign seats.
Students are assigned to ONE bus. If a student wishes to ride a different bus, he/she must turn in a note to the AP Office before school. (See Riding a Different Bus)
Students must get on and off at his/her assigned stop.
Anything that creates a distraction will be taken up by the bus driver and given to the school administrator.
Students are responsible for their own band and orchestra instruments. Students must sit with their own instrument. Instruments must fit on the student’s lap in order to ride on the bus with them.
Bus Discipline Procedures
1st Offense: Warning, assigned seat and School consequence.
2nd Offense: 5 - 10 days bus suspension and School Consequence
3rd Offense: Bus suspension for the remainder of the semester or year and School consequence
Note: Any serious bus offense (e.g. fighting) may automatically result in automatic bus suspension, regardless of the number of prior offenses.
Riding a Different Bus
A student may need to ride a bus other than the one to which he/she is assigned for emergency reasons only. Before students may ride any bus other than their own, the principal or assistant principal must approve a note from the parent requesting that a different bus be ridden.
The note must include:
- Student’s name.
- Number of bus to be ridden and name of student he/she is riding with.
- Number of regular bus.
- Reason for the request.
- Parent or guardian’s signature along with work & home phone numbers.
The student must turn the bus note in to the AP Office before school. This note is verified by the office and returned to the student. Notes are not accepted in the halls, cafeteria, or at the bus stop and will not be signed in these spots. Students can pick up approved bus notes from the AP Office in the afternoon if they have not been returned to them by the end of the day. Generally, a request to ride a different bus is for one day only. If the request is for an extended period, the school must also check with the Transportation Department before approving it.
