Current Harper Park Bus ScheduleBus Information:
We are excited about the upcoming school year. A very important piece of information for all students and parents is transportation.Bus routes and bus numbers sometimes change. The most recent routes and bus numbers can be using the link above and using the left navigation panel, find middle school and then Harper Park. We encourage you to periodically check this web site for changes. Please take time to review the bus routes and identify your stop.
It is a good idea for new students to Harper Park to walk to the actual bus stop prior to the first day of school, to reduce stress and anxiety. Please note that bus drivers and school administrators can assign seats to any student. Please review the following rules with your children prior to the first day of school:1. Be at you bus stop five minutes prior to your scheduled pick up time.2. Never run to or from the bus.3. Do not push or shove while boarding or unloading from the bus.4. Always remain in your seat, facing forward.5. No eating or drinking while on the bus.6. Keep head and arms inside the bus at all times.7. Do not throw anything in the bus or out of the bus window. (Federal law)8. Always listen and obey the driver.9. Do not yell, scream or shout while riding in the bus.
When students follow all of these rules, everyone will have a safe trip to and from school. In addition, we are asking for parents’ support and assistance at the bus stops. If parents are visible and take an active role with their child at the bus stop, incidents of bullying decrease dramatically.Lastly, we want to remind students and parents that riding the bus is a privilege. If a student chooses to NOT follow the rules of the bus, disciplinary action may be taken which may include suspension of bus privileges and/or suspension from school. In cases where students endanger themselves and others or are in violation of a law, such as throwing items from the bus window at other people or cars, the school resource officer will be notified and charges may be filed. We hope all students choose to follow the bus rules and have a safe and pleasant ride to school.
