  • Buses used for transporting students for the North Pocono School District are equipped with video recording devices to help assure safe operation of the bus and to help assure the safety and protection of all students.
  • If the need arises for your child to ride a bus other than their assigned bus, you must send a signed note with your child to the school giving the address and phone number of the place to be dropped. The school will issue a bus pass on a space available basis if the address is another assigned drop off. Please remember there is a chance there will not be room on the bus you request for a bus pass. If this happens, you will be notified by the school that the bus pass was not available. Bus passes are only for permanent or semi permanent arrangements and should be submitted well in advance. Day to day bus passes cannot be honored. When submitting a request, please include, student name, grade, school, your name, contact information and the drop off/pick up address.
  • School buses are required to stop at railroad crossings; any driver failing to do so should be reported to the local police jurisdiction, and the Pennsylvania State Police. A call to the transportation department, at (570) 842-7659, ext. 8701, is also important. It is required that the person witnessing the violation report it to the police.
  • The Pennsylvania Vehicle Code (75 Pa.C.S.) states that all vehicles must stop for a school bus stopped with its red lights flashing.
  • Please note that K-4th grade students will only be dropped off at the bus stop in the afternoon if a parent/guardian or designated adult is present. If an adult is not at the stop and the driver/school has not been notified of any change in procedure the driver will take the child back to the District Office located in the Middle School. The parent will be contacted and is responsible to pick up the child at the District Office.
  • In the event that your child/children miss the bus at their stop, please do not have your child/children get out of the car behind the bus at another stop and walk or run alongside the bus to board it. This manner of boarding the bus is very unsafe. The bus driver may not be able to see them and start to pull away. If one of the children were to trip and fall under the back wheels of the bus, the results would be tragic. The safety of your children is very important to us.
  • Because there are so many variables when dealing with transportation, elementary parents are asked to be patient the first week of school until bus routes and times become more established. Time delays are to be expected until adjustments can be made. Please keep in mind that because of scheduling and the number of children transported, your child must be at the bus stop 5 minutes prior to scheduled pick up time.
  • Occasionally, a child may miss his/her bus stop at the end of the school day or get on the wrong bus. Should this occur the following procedures will be followed by the bus driver:
    • If a driver has an elementary run only, they will take the child home at the end of the run.
    • If a driver has both an elementary and secondary run at the end of the day, they will take the child home if time allows, if not, the child will be brought to their school.
  • Parents are responsible for notifying the school of any change in their routine.
  • Note to Jefferson Elementary parents: For the safety of all Jefferson Elementary students, please follow the signs and lines in the parking lot area for the designated parent drop-off area.
