School Bus Rules


Parents Transporting Students

The school makes every effort to transport students by school bus to school activities.  Sometimes it is necessary to have parents assist in transporting students to events or take students home.  Parents must have on file, in the office, information regarding their up-to-date auto insurance policy, copy of drivers license and DMV driving record in order to transport any students, including their own.  School Driver Certification Forms are available in the school office.  Seat belts are required for each passenger.  Emergency medical cards for each student and first aid kits are taken along.

Safe school transportation is considered an integral part of the total educational program. Riding a school bus is a privilege not mandated by the California State Law. The primary purpose of school buses is to safely transport students from home to school and return. We recognize that a safe school bus operation is only possible with the full cooperation of our parents, students, and school staff. A copy of the School Bus Safety Plan is available upon request in the office.

Permission to ride the school bus can be taken away anytime for disruptive or unsatisfactory behavior. All students being transported are under the authority of the bus driver and must obey his/her requests. The school will give drivers full support in all situations. Written permission is required if students diverge from their normal routine.

Transportation Services Plan

The Grenada Elementary School District Transportation Department is seeking feedback from classified staff, certificated staff, school administrators, regional and local transit authorities, local air pollution control districts, air quality management districts, parents, pupils, and other stakeholders regarding our draft Transportation Plan. Please preview the draft Transportation Plan and provide your feedback by 5:00 p.m., March 16, 2023.

Board Policy AR 3541

Under a new state law, California Education Code Section 39800.1 requires that school districts develop a Transportation Services plan. This is the first year of that requirement. 

The draft Transportation plan is an outline of our services. Feedback will be reviewed for future plan updates. As this is a new requirement for the 2023-24 fiscal year, we believe this first plan should outline our baseline of services. The plan must be presented and adopted by April 1, 2023. The plan will be presented to the Board of Education for adoption at its meeting on March 16, 2023.
