Parents & Students

Student safety is our number one priority. Sequoia Union High School District transports over 800 students to and from school daily. On this page, you will find bus safety resources and information on all our transportation programs.
 
  • Please contact 650.306.8875 for information on student bus route schedules. If the bus is running more than ten minutes late please give us a call.
  • As parents you should be familiar with the safest walking route for your child's school bus stop. Please have your child follow this route.
  • Responsibility for the safe transportation of school children is a joint effort and must be shared by parents, students and school personnel, as we as school bus drivers and supervisors.
 
At the School Bus Stop
 
  • Show respect for property around the school bus stop. Avoid littering or walking on planted areas.
  • Students should arrive at the school bus stop prior to the arrival of the bus. Please remain at least 12 feet back from the curb.
  • Do not run toward the bus. Wait in line until the bus has stopped completely and the door has been opened. Board the bus in single file, without pushing. Keep one hand free and use the handrail.
 
Exiting the Bus
 
  • You may get off the bus only at your assigned designated school bus stop. If you need to get off at a different stop, written permission must be obtained from the school administrator or parent.
  • Remain properly seated until the school bus comes to a complete stop and the door is opened. Follow the driver's instructions for the unloading sequence. Hold the handrail for balance and safety while walking down the steps. Stay back from the curb as the bus leaves. Stay out of the Danger Zone.
 
Student Behavior on the Bus
 
  • The safe transportation of students requires responsible behavior by all persons who ride school buses. Students who do not follow the regulations or the driver's instructions may be counseled or denied transportation.
