    4. DO NOT LOCK YOUR BICYCLE UP WITH ANY OTHER BICYCLE. The office will NOT call another student out of class if you must leave early.


    1.   Any student who lives two miles or more from school is eligible to ride the bus without cost.
    2.   All students riding school buses should recognize that transportation service is a privilege and therefore the rights of all should be respected. All school rules must be observed on the bus; failure to do so will result in a referral and disciplinary action, which may include suspension from the bus.
    3.   The school does not approve notes for students to ride a different bus home.
