Valley Christian Schools’ Department of Transportation has been offering safe, dependable, quality transportation to our families for well over 10 years. In 2009, we contracted with First Student, the largest provider of student transportation in North America, to improve and expand our busing program. We currently offer over 40 different routes that carry hundreds of our students to and from school Monday through Friday. Our expanded busing program eases commutes for our families and allows them to take advantage of the incredible programs at Valley Christian Schools no matter where they live in the South Bay. It is important to us that we offer quality busing at a reasonable price to all of our interested families. For $275 a year one-way, or $550 a year both ways (per child), we can assist you with your child’s transportation needs. For your convenience and security, we also provide an SMS program which supports real-time communication to provide parents and students immediate notification in the event of busing delays caused by road conditions, inclement weather, etc. For more information visit our website at vcs.net.

BUSING SERVICE AGREEMENT

RULES & REGULATIONS 1. All school rules in the Valley Christian Schools Handbooks apply to the bus; the bus is an extension of the classroom. 2. All students transported on the bus shall submit to the authority of the driver and shall address the driver with respect. 3. Students will be considered late for the bus if they are not on the bus and seated by the departure time. The bus driver will not stop to load a student on to the bus after it has departed the established bus stop location. • The following is a direct quote from Vehicle code 22112: “The school bus driver shall stop to load or unload pupils ONLY at a school bus stop designated for pupils by the school district superintendent or the head or principal of private school, or authorized by any of those individuals for a school activity trip.” 4. Upon arrival of the bus, students are to do the following: • If waiting to load – line up in an orderly manner 12 feet away from the bus. • If waiting to exit – remain seated until the bus comes to a complete stop and the door is opened. 5. No objects or any part of the body shall be allowed outside the windows. 6. Eating, drinking, and chewing gum are not allowed on the bus unless the driver gives permission. 7. No littering on the bus. 8. Excessive yelling and movement are not permitted. 9. No defacing the bus. 10. Remain seated and face the front while the bus is moving. 11. To ensure the safety of our students, parents must stay with their children at the bus stop in the mornings until the school bus arrives. Also, parents must arrive on time in the afternoon to meet their children’s bus upon arrival. Please note that no supervision is provided at bus stops. Discipline will be handled by each student’s campus. Repeated infractions will result in a loss of bus riding privileges.
