ENID PUBLIC SCHOOLS BUS RULES AND PROCEDURES

Enid Public Schools policy is that “School bus transportation is a privilege provided for the convenience and safety of the students.”  The driver and/or monitor is in charge of all students who choose to ride the bus.  When the rules are violated, the driver will usually issue several verbal warnings.  Children with continued behavior problems will receive a Bus Conduct Report through the principal’s office.  If the behavior continues, notices are sent to parents that outlines one of the following consequences:

  • Assigned seat and probation
  • 3 days suspension from bus privileges
  • 5 days suspension from bus privileges
  • 10 days suspension from bus privileges
  • 1 semester suspension from bus privileges
  • One year suspension from bus privileges

(Consequences will be decided by the principal and the director of transportation on an individual basis based on the severity of the actions.)
