A NOTICE TO JVS STUDENTS AND PARENTS
On days that Midview High School is not in session and the JVS is, JVS students are transported from Midview High School to the JVS in the morning at their regular time. They are also then picked up at the JVS in the afternoon and transported back to Midview High School. The only exception to this is on snow days. If the Midview School District is closed due to weather conditions, buses do not run at all. If the JVS is open on these days, students must find their own way to and from the JVS.
- Once a child boards the bus - and ONLY at that time - does he/she become the responsibility of the school.
- The state law requires that students arrive at the bus stop five (5) minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive.
- Students must wait at a Designated Point of Safety, clear of traffic and away from the edge of the road.
RULES FOR BEHAVIOR ON THE BUS
- Students must go directly to the first available seat.
- Students must remain seated keeping aisles and exits clear. Back to the back of the seat. Seat on the seat. Feet on the floor.
- Students may talk but cannot yell.
- Students cannot swear or use abusive language, make sexual comments or threaten others.
- Students cannot eat, drink or chew gum.
- Drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and weapons (including pocket knives) are never allowed on buses.
- Students cannot bring anything on the bus that cannot fit on the student's lap. Books, instruments, coats, etc., must be on lap.
- Students cannot bring class projects, animals, sticks, glass objects, laser lights, cell phones, electronic games, skate boards, etc. on the bus.
- Students must not put arms or head out of windows. Windows are opened at the discretion of the driver.
- Students must not throw or pass objects on, from, or into the bus.
- Students must obey the driver promptly and respectfully.
- Students cannot litter or damage the inside of the bus.
- Students must be silent when the bus is crossing railroad tracks.
- For your own safety, DO NOT DISTRACT THE DRIVER THROUGH MISBEHAVIOR.
THESE RULES ARE PART OF THE STATE LAW AND ARE BINDING ON THE SCHOOL, THE PARENT, AND THE STUDENT.
While law requires the school district to furnish transportation to students living beyond two miles in grades K-8, it does not relieve parents from the responsibility of supervision of students until such time as their child boards the bus in the morning and after the child leaves the bus at the end of the school day.
