    KINDERGARTEN BUS RIDER INFORMATION

     

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

     

    We know there is a great deal of excitement when your child enters school.  We share that excitement and are busy preparing to ensure children are met with a smooth and easy transition.

     

    Parents/guardians of all kindergarten students who will be riding an afternoon school bus are required to read this form and identify a dismissal choice. Please consider the options presented and select only one for your student. Complete the form and return it during registration and/or no later than Monday, August 15, 2022 - the first day of school learning OR prior to the first day your child rides a bus home.

     

    To support the safety of all students, it is critical that we have this information. Please know that bus operators are not generally authorized to return students to school if an adult is not present (if that is your option) when the bus arrives at the afternoon bus stop. If the designated adult is not at the bus stop location as agreed, procedures may require operators to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office or Department of Children and Families. While these actions may appear extreme, they serve as guidelines that consistently promote the safety and security of students.

     

    Your child’s dismissal information, specifying your preference and understanding of procedures, will be kept on file at the school and given to the bus operator as needed.  Bus operators are only allowed to transport students for whom they have completed forms. Thank you for partnering with us to maintain a safe and welcoming school experience for your child.

     

    Sincerely,

    School Principal

     

    Please complete and return to the school office by August 15th the 1st day of school OR PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY YOUR CHILD RIDES A SCHOOL BUSThis form must be on file for your child to be dismissed properly.  No child may ride the school bus without your approval submitted by this completed form.
