Bus Information



On a first year trial basis, NextGen has contracted with First Student bus services to transport children to and from school 
during the 2017/2018 school year.  The attached letter is the contract with certain rules, responsibilities and regulations put into 
place in order to keep our children safe.  To ride a bus is a privilege, not a guarantee, so following the rules completely allows children and parents a convenient way of getting their children to and from school safely.  

*Please read the following information carefully.

  1. Kindergarten and First Graders will not be dropped off, after school, if their pick up person is not at the stop. 
  2. The child will be transported back to school after the bus has completed its route and held in the office until they are picked up.
  3. Second through eighth grade students will be dropped off at their designated stop.  It is the parent’s responsibility from the point of drop-off for your child to get home safely.  The bus driver will NOT sit and wait for all parents to pick up their child in this age group.
  4. Once we get through the first 2 weeks, we will be administering Bus Badges per student.  They will be color coded so the driver may easily identify students, their designated stop and the age/grade of the child.  I recommend you make an extra copy or two in case the child leaves it behind or loses it.  We will not replace lost or stolen badges.  No exceptions!
  5. It is most important parents and students know if they are riding the bus any and all days BEFORE leaving home.  My office staff has been instructed to hold parents accountable for children knowing if they are riding the bus or not. Due to the added chaos at the end of each day, it is not possible to deliver messages about bus transportation to children.  Therefore, bus messages will not be delivered to students at any time of the day.  No exceptions!

We are excited about being able to offer bussing to our families.  Please understand, this is a new project and it will take a few weeks
 to balance everything out before it runs smoothly.  Please be patient and understand we are doing it for the 
convenience of our families…

Thank you,

Mrs. Pombo
