Buses are provided for all pupils by the Board of Education. Safety is the top priority of the Lenape District Transportation Department. Consequently, cameras may be installed on specific vehicles when deemed necessary to assure safety.
Students leaving the school on a school bus to attend an activity must return to the school on the same bus.
Exceptions to this policy may be made only by contacting the school and following specific procedures.
After School Transportation (Late Buses):
Students are encouraged to seek additional assistance from their teachers, use the media center, participate
in co-curricular activities and interscholastic athletics. Transportation is provided for those who participate in
these after school activities. Late bus runs are provided by the District on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays
each week as a COURTESY BUS only. The District’s intent is to transport students to a safe location near
the area that the student resides. Late runs DO NOT provide the same drop off locations as regular routes.
If a student leaves the school grounds any time prior to boarding a late bus, transportation will not be
provided to that student.
Once a late bus has begun moving, it will not stop for students who have not boarded by the
designated departure time as a safety measure.
Behavior: Students who do not behave in accordance with the Bus Regulations, or who are involved in
any disturbance on a school bus, will face disciplinary action, including possible immediate expulsion from
the bus. Students will refrain from boisterous behavior, yelling, cursing, fighting, disrespecting other students
or the driver and throwing objects, etc., while aboard buses. School buses will be returned to a school
whenever a situation develops that needs immediate attention, or the police will be called if necessary.
Bus Stops: Any concerns relative to a bus stop should be brought to the attention of the Transportation
Coordinator at (609) 654-5527 and select option 4.
Lost Items: Lenape Transportation is not responsible for lost items left on district vehicles.
Understand most buses are used for other activities and will be used by many other students. Anything
left on the bus can be picked up by someone else very easily. Be vigilant to keep track of your belongings.
If you lose something on a contracted bus, you will be responsible to contact the specific contractor and
collect your belongings at their location.
Switching Buses: Students assigned to a particular bus must not change buses without the prior
written request from the parent/guardian of the student. An Administrator at the school must approve the request first, then forward the written request to Transportation and then the permission will be granted.
