Additional Information 

  • All kindergarten students must have a parent, guardian or authorized person 18 years of age or older present at their bus stop before discharging them. The only exception allowed, is when the Transportation Department has preapproved a written permission from the parent/guardian allowing the child to walk home alone or to be released to a sibling. 
  • Bonita USD will not dismiss a kindergarten student until the parent, guardian or authorized person comes to the door of the bus to receive the student. We will not release a kindergartner under any other circumstances such as: the parent is sitting in their car, or the parent waves at the bus driver from the door of the house, or the parent doesn’t come to the door of the bus, etc…
  • We will wait no more than one minute past your scheduled drop off time. If a parent, guardian or authorized person is not at the bus stop to receive their kindergartner we will continue with the remainder of the route so that the other students are not late then return the student to their school of attendance.  

Bus Safety Information

Here are a few important reminders:
  • Bus Stops have been Designated by the Dispatcher and Transportation Director based on the address information provided on the bus lottery interest form.
  • Assigned seats will be given to every rider on the first day that transportation begins. Seating charts are created based on the students' bus stops and shared members within the same household.
  • Multiple stop locations are not available due to space limitations.
  • School Bus Drivers are only allowed to pick up and release students at stops approved by the district.
  • Students will be asked to display their bus pass daily. Repeated failure to show passes may result in loss of riding privilege.
  • In an effort to provide transportation for those in need, students that miss 5 consecutive days in a 30 day period will be removed from transportation. 
  • All buses are equipped with video monitoring systems.
  • All students (in grades higher than Kindergarten) will be self released at their bus stop.  If a student does not see a parent or guardian at a bus stop, and does not feel safe to be released at their stop alone, the student will be returned to the school site.
    • We cannot give courtesy calls at every stop, or wait more than 1 minute for a parent or guardian while unloading at our stops. 
  • Kindergarten students
    • Can ride to school in the AM at the beginning of the school year. 
    • Can ride home from school in the PM when the Kindergarten schedule matches the elementary sites all day schedule. 
      • Currently we do not offer midday Kindergarten transportation services.
    • Require a minimum of two guardians on their application for PM release. 
Seating Assignments
  • Assigned seats will be given to every rider before they are able to ride on a route following Federal, State and local laws
  • During loading, students will seat from the rear of the bus forward to prevent students from walking past each other
  • Students will be routed and assigned a seat to prevent students from walking past one another. Morning runs should be routed so that a student's assigned seat coincides when they board the bus and afternoon runs should be boarded based on the order in which students will be dropped off. For example, students who get off first should board last and sit in the front
  • Dispatcher will create the seating chart based on students routing and give assigned seating chart to the Driver assigned to complete the route.
Regular Cleaning Practices
  • Buses are expected to be thoroughly cleaned daily by Drivers
  • Drivers are provided cleaning materials, including but not limited to wipes and disposable gloves, to support cleaning of frequently touched surfaces during the day
  • Clean and sanitize/disinfect all used areas of the vehicle at least daily
    • Begin with sweeping/vacuuming the floor
    • Clean and sanitize/disinfect all areas working top/bottom and back/front
  • Frequent touch points such as seats, handrails, and window ledges may need to be cleaned and sanitized/disinfected between trips of different student groups.
