Additional Information:

 

Violations of school bus rules will be handled on an individual basis between rider and driver.  If a problem continues, parents will be contacted and progressive actions taken by school officials and/or the Transportation Department.  Immediate loss of transportation may occur depending on the severity of the violation.  Remember, school bus transportation is a privilege, not a right; school bus transportation can be suspended for willful misconduct or endangering the overall safety of the school bus or its occupants.

 Safety is the primary concern of the Fremont RE-2 School District Transportation Department.  When an incident occurs and distracts a driver’s attention from the road, the safety of the driver and each student is jeopardized.  Rules of conduct for students in transit minimize the risk of harm or injury to them and their driver.
