Sequoia Union High School District

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. Clarke School, Pace School, and Spectrum Center; (3) the Tinsley Volunteer Transfer Program; and (4) the following elementary school districts: Belmont-Redwood Shores, Las Lomitas, Menlo Park, Portola Valley, San Carlos, and Woodside.

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.

Red Light Law
An Important reminder to our parents, community members
and driving-age students:
Red Light Escort helps student getting off bus cross the street
Red Light Escort - California Vehicle Code 22112

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.
