Bus Safety & Guidelines

On behalf of Lynch Bus Lines, welcome to Meadowridge School: we hope to make your riding experience a safe and enjoyable one. Further to this, we feel it is important to go over the safety guidelines which every family should be aware of and must follow.

The bus drivers will be requesting the students to show their Passes from time to time and all single ride tickets will be collected.

Passes and Invoices: Once you have registered for bus service, you are purchasing a seat for the entire year. Lynch Bus Lines will invoice you directly and once payment is received you will receive a bus tag that must be visible to the bus driver when boarding the bus.

This service is not available to Junior Kindergarten students and Kindergarten students may ride the bus only at the discretion of the Deputy Head or Headmaster.

Bus Pass Tickets: Bus Pass tickets can be purchased in books of 10 at the Front Desk. The use of these is subject ot seat availability and cannot be used as Regular Rider Passes.

Stops: Stops are designed in accordance with the application form addresses and may be adjusted to suit demographics.

Seating: White riding the bus, students must remain seated at all times, as sudden stops can seriously injure children. Please talk to your child about these safety matters. Bus seating will be assigned in the first month of school so that your child will know which seat they have for the entire year.

Waiting for busses to arrive: Bus stops have been chosen for the degree of safety, not just convenience. These are public areas that we use at the discretion of the owners, so we must respect the patrons of the area at all times. Please do not block access for others or park in reserved areas and places that we have been asked not to use. Disregarding patron requests will force the owners to ask us to leave, and Lynch will then need to find a new location.

Drivers are not allowed to stop at any other location except the next designated stop on their route. If you miss the bus, please proceed to the next stop and have your child(ren) board the bus there. All of the busses are numbered for your convenience.

Late Busses: Students are still required to sign up for safety reasons.

Miscellaneous: Your child is welcome to use alternate bus stops along your registered bus schedule route only .Students cannot ride on a difference Lynch bus without permission from the office. This is also based on availability. TO ride a difference bus, we require a written request from home 24 hours in advance. The bus radio will play music that is appropriate for all age groups. Students may listen to their own music through headphones as long as it does not disturb others.

Eating on the bus: Students are NOT allowed to eat on the bus while it is in motion, as it is a choking hazard. The driver cannot keep track of students at all times. Should the bus stop suddenly or go over a large bump, a child could easily choke. This is not only a safety issue, but a liability issue as well. Parents should be aware that most school districts do not allow eating on busses.

Bus Drivers: Remember that our drivers look after your children every day; please treat them with respect and courtesy. If you have a complaint, please talk to the school's administration or with Cory Lynch at Lynch Bus Lines at 604-439-0852. We are here to help.

Parents: Parents and Guardians are responsible for ensuring their child has safely boarded their morning bus ON TIME, as well as ensuring their child will be picked up ON TIME in the afternoon.

Parents and Guardians must give written notice to the office 24 hours in advance if their child is to be dropped off at a different schedule stop. If the child does not present written permission from their parent/guardian, he/she will not be dropped at a different schedule stop.

Moving: If you are moving and require a different bus stop for your child, please inform the office and Lync Bus Lines as soon as possible.

Meadowridge School and Lynch Bus Lines reserve the right to deny bus service to anyone who does nto follow the safety guidelines and rules. Failure to comply with these rules will result in the loss of bus privileges for your child. If you have questions please contact: Cory Lynch, Lynch Bus Lines at 604-439-0842 or Mrs. Dionne Streng, Meadowridge School at 604-467-4444 ext. 101.
