TIPS FOR PARENTS


If you have changed address or day care provider this summer, please let the bus garage know by calling (518) 891-2859, texting to (518) 569-9094 or emailing slcsbusinfo@slcs.org

An adult must be present to meet afternoon elementary students at drop off – we will not drop off without actually seeing an adult. Written permission must be provided for a bus to drop off an elementary student at a location without adult supervision.


If your address is a post office box number, please let us know where you reside, it is impossible for our drivers to know where to pick-up or drop-off your child without a street or road location. Also, a number on your house or rural mailbox will make it much safer for the driver to locate your residence.

The use of backpacks is recommended for younger children. It reduces the possibility of loose items being dropped or blown into the path of a school bus or car.

Students are not permitted to eat or drink while riding a bus to or from school. (Lollipops and hard candy can be deadly if the bus has to stop abruptly) Students are expected to stay in their seats and behave properly. Improper behaviors may result in a Disciplinary Referral with consequences.

If your child is to be dropped off at a location other than normal, the student must have a note from home. School staff will provide students with a Signed Bus Pass to present to the bus driver.
