The Minneapolis Public Schools provide bus transportation for students to and from school. There are certain rules and regulations to protect the safety and welfare of each rider. Every child, regardless of age, must take responsibility for following these rules. Carelessness, thoughtlessness, or misconduct can cause injury to self and/or others. The Minneapolis Public Schools Citywide Discipline Policy applies at the bus stop and on the bus.
Students who ride the bus must not walk home unless the school has received a permission note from the child's parent/guardian.
A student may be denied the privilege of riding the school bus.
A student may be immediately removed from the bus and/or suspended from school if there is a serious problem on the bus. Suspension from the bus does not mean a child is suspended from school, but it does mean that parents have to find a way to get their child to school and pick their child up.
Parent/guardians will be billed for school bus vandalism caused by a person under the age of 18. A police report will be filed for vandalism.
Continue to the next rule: Curfew.
