Concerns About School Bus Driver -

If you have a concern with the SSSBT bus driver or Bus Monitor, please contact the School Bus Coordinator. If your issue is still not resolved please contact the Back Office of SSSBT and register a complaint via email or via telephone. Do not approach the bus driver or stop the bus or interfere with the operation of the school bus in any way.

Student Behaviour Affects Bus Safety -

The behavior of each student on the bus directly affects the safety of others. Incidents of poor behavior on the bus are directly reported in writing by the Bus Monitor to the School Coordinator and then to School Principal. Depending on the seriousness of the incident, the principal may issue a warning to the student, speak to parents, suspend bus privileges or take other disciplinary action.

Safety Initiatives -

The following safeguards will assist students during the first few weeks of school:

  • Bus Numbers - Each school bus has a route number and it is posted in the front window and the door side of the bus. This helps the students to identify the bus.
  • Bus Stops - Bus drivers will have a list of their students and their stops. The Bus Monitor will assist younger children in learning their stop.
  • School Bus Orientation – School Bus Monitor will assist teachers in familiarizing your child with bus routines and expectations.

Further SSSBT request parents to make sure the students are aware of the bus rules and also respect the Bus Driver and Monitor and adhere to all instructions issued by them at all times.

Every student who travels on an SSSBT bus is expected to be at the desig nated waiting point five minutes before the scheduled arrival time. Buses will not leave from location ahead of schedule. However, buses will not be able to wait at pick-up points for not more than one minute after the scheduled time. Due to traffic delays buses may arrive at pick-up and drop off points behind schedule.
