Bus Drop-Off Waiver Info

K-4 Bus Drop-Off Procedure

Approved by the Newtown Public Schools Board of Education

September 4, 2012


Students in kindergarten through grade four should be met at the bus stop by a parent, other known adult, or older sibling.


If no parent, other known adult, or older sibling is at the bus stop, children will be transported back to their home schools.  Parents will be contacted to pick students up at the school office.


If a family so chooses, they may sign a waiver allowing their first through fourth grade children to disembark from the bus even if no adult is there to meet the children.  Click the link below for a copy of the waiver.


Kindergarten students are not eligible for the waiver.  They will not be dropped off unless they are met by a parent, other known adult, or older sibling.

Fingerprinting Reminder

All parents who intend to volunteer in our kindergarten and first grade classes MUST be fingerprinted before being allowed to interact with the students. Volunteers for grades 2-4 with direct one-on one contact with a child also must be fingerprinted. If you were fingerprinted last year, you do not need to go through the process again.

Fingerprint cards and instructions can be picked up at the Board of Education Central office at Fairfield Hills Campus.

The district will cover all related costs, 
so there are no out-of-pocket expenses.
