Riding the school bus is a privilege. Improper conduct on the bus can result in the privilege being denied. Bus transportation rules are simple and easy for Lee County's Georgia Pre-K students to follow. They are designed to help the driver keep a safe an orderly bus and to help a student understand his/her responsibility as a passenger on the school bus.

 

Afternoon Car Pick-Up 2:45-3:00

In order for car pick up to run smoothly, please put the car pick-up sign on the left hand side of the car windshield.  You will receive this at open house. We will follow this procedure all school year. Student should be picked up by 3:00.   You must have sign present in car to pick up the student. If you need extra please inform your teacher at the beginning of the school year. Someone will call your student’s name on the radio and teachers will have them lined up. Adults will guide traffic flow so that 3 students may be loaded at once. Once your child is in please do not get out of the car, pull forward toward the BoE building to give assistance with seatbelts.

 

Morning drop-off 7:308:15

Enter the car lane at the designated gate on Starksville Ave, drive around to the covered walkway to let students out. The lane will merge into one at the fence so please be sure to take turns entering.  Booster seats should be placed on the right side of the vehicle so that adults on duty can help if needed. Parents should not get out of the car. The teachers on duty will remove your child from the car. Please have your child ready to exit the vehicle as soon as you pull up to the covered area so traffic can run smoothly. If you arrive past 8:15 you will be required to park and sign in.  The teachers on duty will watch for the last car to pull up. If you pull up past 8:15, even if other cars are in front of you, it is still considered tardy. We do not allow walk ups in the mornings or afternoon. This is very dangerous due to the amount of traffic, buses, and lunch trucks.

 

Extended Day

Students will be transported by Pre-K bus and met by qualified staff members who provide a snack and conduct student activities at the school. Contact Carla Polk at 903-2195 for information regarding cost and space availability.

Bus Discipline

The Lee County Board of Education is genuinely concerned about the safety and welfare of the students riding buses. In an effort to inform students and parents or guardians of acts that can threaten safety and welfare, bus rules and regulations have been adopted. The driver, together with the transportation supervisor and the Pre-K director, shall have full responsibility for discipline on buses. (Note: All school rules apply when students are riding on buses.)

 

Bus Transfer

All Pre-K students will ride a transfer bus to LCP or KPS depending on their zone. The student will then be placed on their correct bus.  Four assistants will be on each transfer bus at all times to make sure students are placed on the correct bus. Please make sure that you keep the bus tag attached to their book bag at all times. The assistants will also meet the students in the mornings at KPS or LCP to transfer them onto the Pre-K bus.
