Sun Prairie Area School District staff members work collaboratively with our district transportation provider, Kobussen Buses, to keep students safe while riding the bus.
We use the "Kobussen Cares" logo to highlight our expectations for all bus riders and drivers. To support SAFETY for all, our EXPECTATIONS are that everyone demonstrates RESPECT through APPROPRIATE bus behavior on a CONSISTENT basis.
To meet these EXPECTATIONS, all bus riders need to:
- Sit down when they get on the bus,
- Face forward when seated,
- Keep the aisle clear so everyone can move safely,
- Keep voices quiet so everyone can enjoy their ride and hear instructions,
- Keep hands to themselves, and
- Do not eat on the bus to keep it clean and sanitary.
We appreciate parents/guardians, district staff, and bus drivers for reminding students that KOBUSSEN CARES!
