MLWGS is opening 2 hours late Thursday, December 13th

Transportation

Bus transportation is provided to students by their school district. Riding a bus is a privilege, not a right. All students are under the jurisdiction of the driver while they are on the bus. Drivers have the same authority as a teacher in the classroom. Matters of student conduct by MLWGS students will be governed by the Student Code of Conduct.

SCHOOL BUS SAFETY RULES 

  •  Cooperate with the driver.
  •  Talk quietly and respectfully to each other and to the driver.
  •  Enter and exit the bus in an orderly fashion.
  •  Stay in your seat and keep the aisles clear all times.
  •  Keep your hands to yourself.
  •  Do not throw anything on the bus, at the bus, or out of the bus.
  •  Do not put arms, hands, head, or any other part of your body outside the window.
  •  Do not eat on the bus.
  •  Keep the bus clean.
  •  Do not damage the bus or tamper with bus equipment.

Change of Bus StopFor all districts except Richmond, parents who desire to change their child’s stop for a day(s) must contact their district transportation office.  Richmond parents should have their child pick up a form from Office 100.

Temporary Change of Bus:  Students are only permitted to ride a bus other than their own if a request is submitted to Office 100 by 11:30am on the day of the change.  Forms may be picked up from Office 100 the day before.  Requests are subject to parent verification, administrative approval, and district support.
