Policy and Rules
Bus Policy
1. On days when the school is in session the school contracts a local bus company to transport students to school in the morning and home again in the afternoon.
2. The school does not own or operate the buses, nor does it employ the bus drivers.
3. Parents who wish their child to travel on the bus must submit School Service Form.
4. Once the number of requests hit a maximum, requests will be placed on a waiting list. Submission of a Transportation Request does not guarantee a place on a bus.
5. Use of a school bus is not included in school fees. Separate bus fee must be paid in advance.
6. Refunds will not be made on days when the bus is not used.
7. The number of bus routes operated will be determined annually by the number of Transportation Requests received and the economic viability of serving each route.

Bus Stops and Routes
1. Each bus will adhere to a published schedule of stops. For reasons of safety, no other stops will be permitted.
2. Stops may be added or withdrawn at any time to meet the changing enrolment of the school.
3. The routes served by each bus will be reviewed annually and changed to best meet the needs of the greatest number.

3. Students should be at the designated bus stop at least 5 minutes before pick-up time. The bus will not wait for late students.
4. For Early Childhood students, if the child’s parent is not at the designated bus stop in the afternoon to meet the child then the child will be brought back to OYIS. The bus cannot wait for late parents.
