School bus services are provided for students if they live more than one and one-half miles from the school. Disruptive behavior on the bus will not be tolerated. We ask that any student having problems on the bus discuss it with the bus driver or school administrators. Students who misbehave on the bus may be suspended from riding the bus and/or suspended from school. Serious infractions could result in immediate bus suspension.
Students who are not regular bus riders, will not be allowed to ride the bus without written parent permission. The notes must be signed by the school administrative staff.
STUDENTS TRANSPORTED BY CAR
At Edisto Elementary we have a unique way of dismissing students in the afternoon who ride cars or day care vehicles. This system helps us to make sure that your child is picked up by the appropriate person and also makes car rider dismissal faster. If your child will be picked up by car or day care during the school year, you will need to register him/her. You may pick up a registration form from our main office.
Car riders are to be brought to school beginning at 7:15 a.m. Students will enter the building through the front doors. Parents/guardians are to turn right at the first driveway which leads to the front of the school. For safety reasons, drive in the right lane and pull up to the front of the building to drop off your child. Also, make certain that your child leaves the vehicle on the right side. We realize that many parents are in a hurry. However, please do not pass another car while driving through the car zone. Do not drop students off in the faculty parking lot. We ask that you follow these procedures to keep all of our children safe.
The same rules are to be followed when picking up your child. Persons driving day care vans may pick up students from a designated area in the faculty parking lot. Car riders must be picked up in front of the school. Students will not be allowed to be picked up by parents in the faculty parking lot. No one is permitted to use the bus zone except bus drivers.
