School Bus Policies, Procedures and Rules Parents are encouraged to explain to their children the importance of good behavior on the school bus, especially those who make the long trip to Yermo every day. Please remember that riding the bus is a privilege. There is no state law requiring the Silver Valley School District to provide transportation for any student. The School Board has determined that bus service will be provided and that students will be picked up at designated stops only. Riders must be at their stops five minutes before scheduled bus arrival time. The following are rules for appropriate behavior on the bus: Follow the directions of the bus driver Stay seated while the bus is in motion Keep all body parts inside the bus Cursing, swearing or loud talking is not allowed No eating, drinking or chewing gum No littering No tampering with bus controls, emergency exits or bus equipment Fighting, horseplay, hitting, pinching or teasing is prohibited Smoking, matches, lighters and weapons are prohibited on buses Students must get off at their designated bus stop and must cross the street in the proper manner Intimidating or threatening the bus driver or other students is prohibited Endangerment of passengers or safe travel is prohibited A teacher or coach must accompany extracurricular or activity trips Remain quiet at railroad crossings Again, bus transportation is a privilege extended only to students who display good conduct while preparing to ride, riding and leaving the school bus. Continued disorderly conduct or persistent refusal to obey the driver is considered sufficient reason for a student to be denied transportation. However, students will still be expected to be present at school each day in accordance with the law.
