School Bus RulesThe safety of the students to and from school is of primary importance to the Kyrene School District. Riding a school bus is a privilege, not a right. Students must adhere to the rules of conduct. Students who behave in appropriately shall be disciplined and may lose their bus privileges.
- Respect your Driver and other students by keeping your hands to yourself.
- Stay in your assigned seats facing the front with your feet on the floor and out of the aisle.
- No eating or gum chewing. Drinking water from a plastic water bottle is permissible.
- If seatbelts are available, they must be worn.
- Do not display any verbal behavior that disrupts the ride (shouting, singing, etc.). Talk in a quiet voice.
- No skateboards, roller skates or in-line skates allowed on buses.
- You may quietly use electronics as long as you do not disturb others.
- The bus is an extension of your school. All other school rules apply while riding on the school bus.
