The New Haven Community Schools
policy is to only transport students from home to school and from school
to home. Therefore, the address given by parents for the pick-up of a
student at the start of each school year is also the child’s permanent
drop-off spot. If a situation arises where a child cannot be at that
stop, the parent/guardian is responsible for the child’s transportation
to school. If a child misses the bus and is taken to another regular
stop, he/she will be picked-up there, but the bus will not stop in the
middle of a block, or at any other unauthorized stop.
child is to be dropped off anywhere except the address given, such as at
a baby-sitter, the building office must be informed so that
transportation can be provided to a stop near that location. Once this
is established as a drop-off, it will be permanent for the school year.
Office personnel and bus drivers have been told that dropping students
off at a friend’s house after school for a birthday party or a sleepover
are not acceptable reasons for changes in bus stops.
To keep track of all students, bus drivers have been directed not to deviate from their regular route and stops.
