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.
