Riding the bus to and from school is a privilege for Compass Academy children. Children need to be well behaved and respectful of the bus driver and supervising staff when riding the bus and while waiting for the bus in order to enjoy this privilege.

Parents requesting changes in riding status must submit that request in writing to New Century School office. If a parent does not want his or her child to take the bus on a given day, the parent must either send the child to school with a signed note requesting staff not to put the child on the bus or call the school by 1:15p.m. to confirm the change in plans. After 1:15pm, we cannot guarantee that the information will be passed along in a timely manner allowing for the change.

To ensure every child’s safety, the staff is required to carry out the plan that has been previously arranged unless they receive written notice or a phone call stating otherwise. Please know that because staff is busy with children during the day, email is not a reliable way to convey a change in transportation plans for your child. Other changes in riding status that are due to family relocation must be submitted to the office in writing a week before the change should occur.

For more information about busing and detailed bus expectations, please download the Family Handbook. We encourage ALL FAMILIES to read the expectations with their student(s) in order to ensure compliance with bus policies.
