Whittemore Prescott Area Schools Transportation

Misbehavior on the bus

Dear Parent(s),

Safety is of prime importance for our students as we transport them to and from school and school sponsored activities. Safety requires the cooperation of students, parents/legal guardians and school personnel.

Here at Whittemore-Prescott Area Schools, we have very high standards of conduct that are expected of all students. The same code of conduct for the classroom applies to the buses as well.

In order to accomplish this goal, good student behavior while entering, riding, and leaving the bus contribute in many ways to safe transportation. Such conduct makes it possible for the driver to give full attention to the roadway and other drivers.

Students should be reminded that all buses are equipped with surveillance cameras, and behavior is monitored closely.

Please encourage your child to report any behavior that could in any way compromise their safety or the safety of others on the bus. Working together, we can maintain a safe educational experience for your child. Join me in stressing to your children the importance of respecting themselves and each other. If you should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me.


Gordon Seyler

Transportation Director

Emergency Alternate Address

Students may have one alternate address to be dropped off in case of an emergency. The address has to be on file with the Transportation office. If the address in not on file, we will not be able to transport your student to an alternate address. This procedure is necessary to assure the safety of students getting to the correct bus stop as well as addressing  issues related to overcrowded busses.

The school will need a written notification in order to honor a request for transporation to an alternate address.  No phone calls will be accepted for bus passes. We will not honor requests for transportation other than an emergency situation. Parents will be responsible for transporting their children for any other reason.

We understand that prior written notice will require making arrangements on your part. The above procedure needs to be followed for us to provide safe transportation for your child.

You can print the Alternate Address Form here, or it is available  upon request  by contacting the Transportation Supervisor Mr. Seyler
