.SMS BUS PROCEDURES
Students who ride school buses to school will be dropped off in the rear of the building. Upon entering the building through one of two designated entrances, students will proceed directly to the Community Events Entrance, cafeteria, library/library computer lab, or gyms. Students are NOT allowed to loiter/mingle in the hallways. School buses depart from behind the school promptly at 3:07pm.
If the family moves and requires a different transportation route please contact the transportation department at 715-394-8706. The school will not notify the Transportation Dept. for you when you call in a change of address.
One-Time Transportation Variance
Students that require a one-time change from their assigned route must bring a written request from a parent/guardian to the Main Office. A one-time variance form will be filled out for the student to give to the bus driver upon entering the bus. Bus drivers are not allowed to accept students without signed variance from the office.
Only students who are eligible to ride a bus are allowed to receive a variance to ride another bus other than their own. This also applies to students getting off at another bus stop. Students will not be allowed to call and make last-minute same day arrangements to ride another bus. We understand circumstances change unexpectedly; therefore exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
Long-Term Transportation Change Request
Students that require any long-term (more than one day) variance from their assigned route must fill out the ‘Long-Term Transportation Change Request Form’ (available from Main Office or the Transportation Dept. at the District Office.). Conditions for approval depend upon sufficient space on the bus or buses affected and that there is no change to the route of the affected bus or buses. The form needs to be filled out by the parent/guardian and returned to the Main Office for approval from the principal.
