School Buses are nearly eight times safer than passenger vehicles. Today's school buses are built with safety in mind. They are tougher, cleaner and more diligently maintained than ever before. School bus drivers are required to receive special security and medical training, and undergo regular drug and alcohol testing to provide a safe ride for your child.
The Sequoia district provides transportation for (1) students traveling from East Palo Alto and East Menlo Park to Carlmont, Redwood and Woodside high schools; (2) special education students enrolled at Carlmont, Menlo-Atherton, Sequoia and Woodside high schools as well as special education students enrolled at Achieve School, Capuchino High School, Esther B.

Please adhere to the current California school bus safety laws. The current red light law requires that motorists stop when school buses activate the flashing red lights, indicating that the bus is loading or unloading children. Motorists who are approaching the school bus on the opposite side of a divided or multiple-lane highway are not required to stop. This is the only exception! When you see flashing red lights activated on a school bus, prepare to STOP! Violators will be fined. For more information contact local law enforcement officials.
