Message From the Bus Garage and Bus Schedule #cesuvt #resvt
Dear Parents and Students:
Welcome to the 2014-15 school year.
Please take a moment to review the bus schedule at www.cesu.k12.vt.us under the General and Parent
Info tab, the select Bus Information. Times are provided for fall and spring. During the winter season,
buses may begin their routes five to ten minutes earlier due to road conditions. If any permanent
changes occur, you will be notified. Students should be at the bus stop, ready to board the bus at least
five minutes prior to the expected arrival of the bus. This will avoid unnecessary delays for the
students further along on the route. Please be aware that drop-off and pick-up times may vary during the
first weeks of school.
Students will be picked up and dropped off at their designated stop unless a written, dated request is
given to school personnel. The school will provide a bus pass that specifies the bus number, address, and
date to the student. The student will then give the bus pass to the bus driver. Students without written
parental permission and school bus pass will not be able to ride an alternate bus.
Preschool and kindergarten students will only be released into the care of a parent or other authorized adult at their designated stop. The adult must meet the child at the bus door. If the authorized adult is not present to receive the child, the child will be returned to the school, and the parent contacted to arrange transportation for the child. Parents of preschool students will be notified of the bus schedule through their school or by the Transportation Department.
Safety is our first priority. To ensure a safe ride, students must follow the expectations that are posted in the bus. In addition, bus expectations are outlined in Student Handbooks and posted on the Chittenden
East website (www.cesu.k12.vt.us). Please review the bus rules with your child.
For safety reasons, skateboards are not allowed on school buses. Large items and sports equipment are
allowed only on a space available basis. If room for these items is not available, parents will need to
arrange alternative transportation for these items. DOT regulations prohibit items in the aisle. Sports equipment (e.g. skis, hockey, football and lacrosse) must be placed in equipment bags.
We look forward to safe and pleasant travels this school year. Please contact the bus garage at 899-4840
or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
