Drop-off & Pick-up Regulations
19-20 Bus Routes
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.
If a 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.
