Seat belts must be fastened at all times and must not be removed until the bus has come to a complete stop.
Students must speak softly and not make excessive noise.
Students must form polite queues and wait for their turn to board the bus and be seated.
Students must be courteous and respectful to everyone, including the bus driver/attendant and fellow students. Fighting, bullying, offensive language or unruly behavior will be reported to the School and subsequent disciplinary action may be taken. A student with repeated misconduct will be suspended from the use of the Bus Service.
Students must be punctual when boarding the bus.
Adults and/or visitors (including students who are going on a play date) are not allowed to travel on the bus with students.
Reservation of seats is strictly not allowed.
Each student is entitled to one seat only and school bags should be placed in a way that it does not obstruct the movement of others on the bus.
Sharp and potentially hazardous items such as pen knives and aerosol sprays are prohibited on the bus; stationery and toys must be kept in school bags.
Changing of clothes on the bus is not permitted.
Pets are not allowed on the bus.
Students will board and alight from the bus at pre-designated points which are safe and convenient. However, IST/Bus Contractor reserves the right to designate the final pick-up and drop off points point in compliance with traffic and safety rules, size of the bus and road conditions.
Chaperons will be provided during the bus service but we do not guarantee that there will be chaperon service all the time.
Due to limited seats, applications will be processed according to first come first served procedure.
All bus riders must obey the above-stated bus rules and regulations. Failure to follow may result in suspension or termination from riding on the buses. The Bus Contractor will inform the School if there is any serious breach of the bus behavior regulations. After investigation of the event, the School Management will have the discretion to either suspend or terminate the bus service to the student. Please note that there will be no refund of bus fees for any period of suspension or termination of the bus service.
Further Explanatory Notes:
For safety and security purposes, all children must wear seatbelt once they board the bus. The only exception is when they get on or off the bus.
All children are expected to behave in a responsible and courteous manner while riding on the bus. Children are also expected to use acceptable language and speak softly so as not to distract the bus driver from the road. This is to ensure a safe and comfortable ride for all.
All children are responsible for keeping track of their belongings; including disposing their trash. For hygiene purposes as well as safety consideration (e.g. eating lollipop with a long stick when the bus may make sudden stops), eating and drinking is prohibited on the bus. The School does not take any responsibility for items lost on the bus.
Children are required to be punctual for their school buses pick up. We seek parents’ assistance to reach the waiting point earlier to avoid the bus waiting for them as this will result in a delay. Parents of young children are required to ensure that someone (a family member or helper) meets the child at the drop-off point.
Children may be moved from one bus to another to accommodate changes in traffic conditions, students’ cohort and changes in bus routing.
We seek parents’ understanding to deal only with the Bus service Coordinator (Maureen Gideon) and NOT directly with the bus driver or bus attendant. This is to avoid any unnecessary miscommunication.
