Bus Regulations & Student Parking 2019 – 2020
Bus Regulations • Safety is the priority when riding in the bus. Students should report directly to the bus lot; no loitering in the commons or bus lot. • To ensure the safe ride on the bus, students shall obey the bus conduct rules. • Students not riding for 10 consecutive days may be removed from the bus. • Students shall not delay the bus schedule, damage the bus, distract the driver, or get off at an unauthorized stop.
Bus Regulations • • RIDING A BUS IS A PRIVILEGE - A STUDENT WHO FAILS TO FOLLOW THE RULES WILL HAVE HIS/HER RIDING PRIVILEGES REVOKED PROGRESSIVELY at a minimum of 3 days. Depending on the severity of the offense, the administration has the right to invoke a more serious consequence as deemed necessary, including suspension or revocation of bus riding privileges. Bus assignments are made based on NC State Statute. Students will be assigned a morning and afternoon run. Students will not be permitted to ride home with other students due to the regulations of North Carolina Torts Claim Act and overcrowding on our buses. Students are not allowed to get off at another student’s stop. Any student providing false information to the bus driver will result in an automatic bus suspension. The school is not responsible for items left on the bus.
Bus Regulations • Buses will load immediately after school and depart campus exactly six (6) minutes following the bell to dismiss school. Any student who is not on the bus at the time the school buses begin to depart will not be permitted to board any bus. Students who miss the bus due to their own negligence are responsible for finding their own transportation. • Failure to follow bus rules can result in suspension from the bus and/or school.
Bus Conduct Rules 1. BE Safe at ALL times • Remain seated, facing forward in your assigned seat. • • No eating or drinking. • Use appropriate noise levels. • Follow the School Bus Driver and/or Monitor’s directions the first time given. • Be respectful with words and actions. Keep your body and all other objects to yourself inside the bus. 2. Be Respectful at all times
Bus Conduct Rules 3. Be Responsible • Ride only your assigned bus; get on or off at your assigned stop. • Maintain cleanliness and appearance of the bus. Do not damage the bus in any way. • Personal electronic devices must be used responsibly.
Student Parking Regulations Remember the following: • Parking on campus is a PRIVILEGE. • SAFETY is our #1 priority. • To park on campus, you must have an up-to-date CMHS parking pass. • The cost of a parking pass=$25. 00 (That price does not change during the year). • You must complete an application and purchase a parking pass BEFORE parking on campus. • ALL student fees must be cleared before you can purchase a CMHS Parking Pass. • To purchase a parking pass, please see Mrs. Barnard in Student Services. • You will need a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance, and car registration.
Student parking regulations • Driving to school and parking on school property are privileges. Students must adhere to student parking regulations in order for us to maintain a safe parking environment. • All automobiles parked on campus must be registered with the school and have a 2019 -2020 CMHS student parking permit visible.
Steps to Purchasing a Parking Permit 1. Complete a parking permit application with Mrs. Barnard. Please bring a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance, and car registration to complete the packet. Mrs. Barnard will be in the Commons during lunches to assist students in purchasing parking passes. 2. Make sure you have no current student fees. You may not purchase a parking pass until you have satisfied all outstanding fees. 3. Pay $25. 00 either directly to Mrs. Barnard or online. If you wish to purchase a second parking pass, the cost is $10. 00 for that pass. 4. Complete the RU Buckled Form. 5. Once you receive your parking pass, display it in the lower left-hand side (driver’s side) of the windshield.
Student parking regulations • All vehicles parked on school property are subject to search by the school administration. • Speeding and reckless operation of a motor vehicle are prohibited and will result in a Saturday School and/or the loss of driving privileges for an amount of time deemed appropriate by the school administration. • Always have your parking pass displayed in the lower left driver’s side windshield. • Students must report to the building immediately upon arriving at school and leave immediately upon dismissal.
Student parking regulations • Students may only park in the student parking lot in a lined spot. No students are allowed to park in the visitor lot, the staff lot, or the bus lot. • Consequences for violating student parking privileges are given at CMHS Administrative discretion. • Students who receive a warning for parking on campus without a sticker are assigned ASD and cannot park on campus until they purchase their parking pass. Students can also receive ISS and lose their parking privileges indefinitely for failure to follow parking regulations and driving safely while on campus.
