Important Bus Information

posted Feb 21, 2019, 11:42 AM by Nickie King   [ updated Jun 2, 2020, 10:32 AM ]

The SDOC Transportation Department will continue its implementation of the following procedure in regards to students in Pre-K through Grade 3.  Students in the 4th grade up are allowed to get off the bus without an authorized adult or guardian being present.


If an authorized adult or guardian are not present at the bus stop to receive the student, the student will be taken back to their home school. The driver will be allowed to take the student back to their home school three times without consequences. After the fourth occurrence of taking a student back to their home school, the student will be suspended off the bus.  Listed below are the consequences for bringing students back to their home school from their bus stop.

·       4th occurrence:   First suspension will result in 5 days off the bus.

·       5th occurrence:   Second suspension will result in 10 days off the bus.

·        6th occurrence:  Third suspension will result in 20 days off the bus.

·         7th occurrence:  Fourth suspension will result in terminating bus services for the remainder of the school year.

Please understand taking students back to their home school causes multiple problems for the transportation department, as well as our schools. Adherence to this procedure will help reduce delays in getting students home after school.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the SDOC Transportation Department at 864-916-0510.
