I look forward to a fantastic year and encourage you as parents to communicate often with the school and staff if questions or needs arise. A parent's sustained interest in their child's academic and social experiences at school can be great motivation for learning. Let your child see and feel that we are working together in every way to make this a terrific school year.


See you at our Back to School Night!

Busing Procedures
Due to liability and safety concerns, the district strictly adheres to the busing procedure set forth by the
Weber School District, the Utah State Office of Education and Risk Management.
The procedure states that school bus drivers are not authorized to allow eligible students, those who are
assigned to their bus route, to be dropped off or picked up at unauthorized bus stops nor to allow students
not assigned to their bus route to ride the school bus. Ineligible students, those who do not qualify for busing
services, are also not allowed to ride the school bus to or from school.
Transporting students to such activities as parties, scouts, sleepovers, achievement days, piano lessons,
daycare, etc. will not be allowed. The school bus is only to be used for transporting eligible students to and
from their registered residence.

3. Bus Routes: Bus routes will be established at the beginning of each school year in accordance with
the regulations listed above and in accordance with sound economical and safety practices. Buses will be
routed in such a manner as to provide approved transportation services that are economically feasible, safe
and practical. The minimum number of general education students required to establish a route is ten: the
minimum number of students with disabilities is five.

2. c. Parents of elementary students who live beyond 1.5 miles from the established bus route and
parents of secondary students who live beyond two miles from the established bus route may be reimbursed
an amount determined by the Board of Education for transporting their students from their registered
address to the nearest bus stop on the regular bus route.
