    BUS RIDERS’ CONDUCT

     

    Bus Schedules: The Decatur Public School District allows Durham Bus Service to schedule all bus transportation.  Any changes in address resulting in a bussing change must be submitted to the school office.  Please be aware that bussing changes take 3 days to complete.

     

    Safety is our major concern for bus riders.  Rules and regulations are noted in the Student Code of Conduct.  Violation of these rules will be considered serious and can result in the student losing the privilege of riding the bus.  Full details are found in the STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT/PARENT HANDBOOK.   Please acquaint yourself with the regulations and procedures for handling inappropriate behavior.
