bus transportation is provided to and from school each
day for students who live more than one (1) mile from
the school they attend. In providing transportation,
the number one priority is the safety of our students.
It is the duty of the passengers, transported in school
buses owned and operated by the New Albany School District,
to conduct themselves in an orderly manner by following
school bus rules and regulations. Transportation for
students who live less than one (1) mile from the campus
and for students who are suspended from riding the bus,
is the responsibility of the parents. Additional information
regarding transportation routes, schedules, etc. may
be obtained from the transportation director, . She may be contacted through the district
administrative office, 534-1800.
While Mississippi law requires the district to furnish transportation to its eligible students, parents have the responsibility of supervising the students until they board the bus in the morning and after they leave the bus at the end of the school day. Students have the responsibility to obey all rules of conduct while waiting for, riding and leaving the bus.
school bus driver is authorized to maintain order to
insure safety at all times. The principal will be responsible
for disciplining students reported to him by the driver.
Questions regarding discipline should be directed to
the school principal. Questions regarding stops, routes,
and student eligibility must be directed to the Transportation
Director, . Emergency bus evacuation drills
are conducted at least two times each year.
