School Bus

School Bus Service

All BCIS students are entitled to a safe and peaceful journey to and from school. In order for this to happen, we encourage all parents and students to read the following information and talk about it at home.

Bus pick-up and drop-off times

All buses are running to a schedule and will therefore wait no longer than three minutes at an assigned pick-up point before leaving. Parents are asked to ensure students are at the pick-up point in good time.

Changes to students taking the bus

If your child is not taking the normal bus for some reason, a written note from home must be sent to the homeroom teacher who will inform the bus monitor. We will not allow students to change buses in any circumstances without a written note. If you take your child home early from school please inform the homeroom teacher that your child will not be riding the bus home.

Bus Behaviour Guideline

  1. Sit in your assigned seat and remain seated for the entire ride.
  2. Younger students to sit near the front of the bus and older students towards the back.
  3. Seat belts must be worn at all times.
  4. Listen to the bus monitor and driver at all times.
  5. Keep head, hands and feet to yourself and inside the bus at all times.
  6. Eating and/or drinking on the bus is not permitted.
  7. Talk quietly - yelling or screaming are unacceptable behaviors. Use an inside voice.
  8. Be courteous - name calling and inappropriate language is unacceptable.
  9. Tampering with safety or emergency bus equipment, or the exit doors, is unacceptable.
  10. Throwing any object on the bus, at the bus or out of the bus is unacceptable.

Consequences of Breaking Bus Guidelines

When a student does not adhere to the bus guidelines the bus monitor will report to the BCIS bus coordinator who in turn will report to the Principal.

One or more of the following steps will then be taken depending on the nature of the incident:

  1. The Principal and homeroom teacher will talk to the student about the incident.
  2. The student will be asked to write a note of apology to the bus monitor or other involved parties. Parents will be informed.
  3. A letter home to parents recording the incident. Copy to student file.
  4. A session with the Counsellor. Reported to parents and record kept on student file.
  5. A 2 day suspension from the bus.
  6. A 5 day suspension from the bus.
  7. Withdrawal of bus privileges.
