The district makes school bus transportation available to all students living two or more miles from school. This service is provided at no cost to students. Bus routes and any subsequent changes are posted at the school.
A parent may also designate a grandparent’s residence as the regular pickup and drop-off location for his or her child. The designated residence must be on an approved stop on an approved route. For information on bus routes and stops or to designate an alternate pickup or drop-off location, you may contact Durham Transportation at 806-866-2136.
See the Student Code of Conduct for provisions regarding transportation to the disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP).
Students are expected to assist district staff in ensuring that buses remain in good condition and that transportation is provided safely. When riding in district vehicles, students are held to behavioral standards established in this handbook and the Student Code of Conduct. Students must:

· Observe all usual classroom rules.
· Be seated while the vehicle is moving.
· Fasten their seat belts, if available.
