Hitherfield School Bus Policy

  • Hitherfield School Bus Policy

    This policy has been put together to ensure the safety of all of our bus students

    Please note: If your child is scheduled to be on the bus but will not be riding the bus on a particular day, please take the following steps:

    Mornings: Please call Denny's Bus Line at 519-833-9117

    Afternoons: Please contact the school office, 905-854-0890

    You, the parent(s), are responsible for the safe pick up of your child at their designated stop. If for any reason you know you will be unable to pick up it is imperative you make other arrangements for his/her safe keeping. You may wish to exchange contact information with other parents at your designated stop, or have another adult you know you can rely on pick up your child in case of emergency. Please list the names of two people who are well known to your child and who would be able to meet your child if you're not there. These names will be given to our bus driver, who will be told to pass the children over to these people only.

    In the event that there is no-one to pick up your child, the driver will not let your child off the bus unless you have agreed to this on the form below. The bus driver will keep your child on the bus while he/she delivers other children and you will be called. The bus driver will then take your child back to Hitherfield School for you to pick up.

    Please note: As of September 1st, 2014 all Pre-School Children must have a car seat to ride the bus. It is the bus company’s policy that the parents buckle their own children in their car seats.
    For more information on this policy, please contact First Student.
