Bus Rules for Students

  • Safety for all students is our priority when transporting students. The following rules, although not all inclusive, have been established to maintain order, safety and well-being for all.
  • Follow all bus driver's directions
  • Sit facing front
  • Classroom behavior is expected
  • Talk quietly; be respectful of others
  • Beverages, food, candy and chewing gum are not allowed on the bus
  • Do not throw items on or out of the bus
  • Aisles must be clear at all times
  • All items must be in backpack/bag, and be held on your lap, including band instruments: large or fragile items are not appropriate for bus transportation; balls need to be in a bag or container
  • Do not write on or damage seats
  • Any behavior that distracts the driver will be cause for discipline
  • Electronic devices are a privilege---not a right. Inappropriate use may result in loss of that privilege: no video recording, sound recording, or picture taking will be allowed; sounds must be muted or turned off; and drivers shall remove a device that is not being used appropriately
  • DeWitt Public Schools policy for tobacco, alcohol, weapons, illegal substance/materials is enforceable on the school buses
  • Students may ride only their scheduled bus and get on and off at their scheduled bus stop.
