Transportation During COVID-19

Salmon River Central School District’s top priority is the health and safety of all students, staff, and communities in our district. Given the extraordinary circumstances associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, students will only be picked up and dropped off from one location for school bus transportation.

We ask that parents/guardians fill out one of these request forms per student:

(This form MUST be filled out to receive transportation for your student).

Bus Transportation Guidelines

Bus Regulations

  • The bus driver will have complete authority while students are on the bus.
  • The student will board the bus, take a seat, and stay in it for the duration of the trip.
  • Movement in and out of the bus will be orderly and without pushing, shoving, or jostling.
  • Each student must respect the property of others.
  • The driver shall have the sole right to assign seats.
  • All students must respect the safety and welfare of other students.
  • Excessive noise will be regarded as detrimental to the safety of students and driver.
  • Immoral conduct or foul language will not be tolerated.
  • Smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, and possessing or using drugs are prohibited.
  • No food or drinks.
  • Students will only be allowed to cross the street in front of the bus when the bus driver gives the safe cross signal. Students are to walk to the front of the bus and cross 10 feet in front of the bus.
  • After school, the destination (designated stop) will be the student’s home.
  • Students will be loaded or discharged only at the designated stop unless a written request is received from the parent. This is required in every instance in which the student is to be picked up or discharged at some location other than home. Bus changes will not be honored over the phone. Students should bring written requests to the office prior to 8:14 a.m.
  • Discipline problems will be referred in writing to the building principal. The penalty for continued misbehavior may range from suspension from riding the bus to suspension from school.

Regulations for Driving to School

  • All students are to ride the bus unless they have completed the proper paperwork with the office and have been given their school issued driving permit. The New York state education law charges each school with the responsibility of all motor vehicles on its premises. In view of this fact, it is our desire to have record of all student drivers and to inform them of regulations for proper and safe operation of vehicles on school property.
  • Due to a limited number of parking spaces, permission to drive may be given only to grade 12 and National Honor Society students in grade 11.
  • Underclassmen must demonstrate that there is a need to drive to school. Students are to schedule a time to meet with the principal to discuss the necessity to drive to school. They must provide a proof of license, registration, and insurance card. Both the student and parent/guardian must sign and return a permission form to the high school office. Students will be assigned to a designated parking area.
