Notice for Bus Riders or those wishing to go home with Bus Riders

Due to seating capacity issues and accident liability students will no longer be allowed to have friends ride home with them.  Notes to the driver will NO LONGER be accepted and arrangements need to made prior.  When accidents occur the transportation office utilizes the student roster for the assigned route to contact the school and parents.  Students riding the bus that are not on the route sheet would be missed and notifying a parent would not be able to be made in a timely manner.

The Cedar Rapids School District is committed to providing all students with a safe and civil school environment in which all members of the school community are treated with dignity and respect. (Policy 612)
