Oversized Objects on the Bus
State and federal regulations prohibit transporting items in school buses that obstruct access to all exits by any occupant or would cause injury as a result of falling or displacement. Items that will not fit on the student’s lap or between their legs will not be transported on state or district buses. School projects, items sold for fund raisers and other unsafe items such as live animals, glass objects, baseball or softball bats, lacrosse sticks, skateboards, sharp objects or similar items can not be allowed on the bus and must be transported to and from school by means other than the school bus. This includes baseballs, basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, volleyballs and tennis rackets unless they are kept in the student's backpack or in a separate bag. Parents must arrange to pick-up or deliver oversized or unsafe items in personal vehicles or items should be kept at school whenever possible. Please speak with your student's coach to make arrangement to keep items at the school or for items to be provided during practices or training sessions.
The following list of instruments are considered to be too large to be transported on a school bus: French Horn, Drums, Baritone Sax, Tenor Sax, Baritone, Euphonium, Tuba, and Cello. Schools usually provide an instrument to use at school when necessary.
