Transportation

Information for Bus Riding


These are expectations for riding Hilda Walker buses. We expect students to ride the bus in a safe manner at all times.

  •   Students are to get on and off the bus at their assigned bus stops.
    •   Students are to ride their assigned bus only. If a student is not going to be riding the bus home and another form of transportation will be used (walking, car ride, etc.) a note needs to be sent with the student.
      •   Students need to be out at the bus stop a minimum of five minutes before the bus is scheduled to stop.
        •   Students must make appropriate behavior choices at the bus stop and while riding the bus.
          •   When students miss their bus they should alert an adult who is supervising outside. Students who miss their bus after school have two options:
            •   go inside and call home for a ride (students will either enter the back door or are to use the front entrance), OR
            •   students may call home and ask to ride the activity bus home.

          SchoolBus

          All students who ride Walker buses are assigned seats. Students are assigned after the first few weeks of school. Students may only change seats with permission from the driver or the administration. Students may be reassigned a seat for disciplinary reasons. Assigned seats have been very successful for Walker students. It has reduced the number of students running to the bus for the "best" seat, it has reduced the number of bus referrals, it has reduced the amount of vandalism to bus seats, it has reduced peer conflicts, and it has helped build relationships with other students.

          Lost and Found

          If you have lost something at school, there are two places to check. If you lost something like a sweatshirt, lunchbox, winter hat or other articles of clothing you need to look on the tables outside of the gym near the vending machine. If you lost something valuable like jewelry, money, books, glasses or keys, check in the main office. If you left something on the bus, check with the office for a few days to see if it was turned in. Many times it takes a few days for things left on the bus to make their way into the building.
