Transportation in an Emergency
DISTRICT TRANSPORTATION DURING A CRISIS
♦ If the emergency situation dictates the emergency evacuation or early dismissal of students and staff, all students will be evacuated by District buses ONLY.
♦ No student will be allowed to drive any vehicle while the emergency evacuation is taking place.
♦ Students may drive personal vehicles during an early dismissal of school. However, if the early dismissal is prompted by an emergency within the school building, such as a fire or explosion, then student drivers may or may not be allowed to drive personal vehicles from the school area for their own safety and if there is a criminal investigation of the incident.
♦ Students who are outside the school district under District authorization, i.e., field trips, athletic events, BOCES, will not be returned to the school. They will be transported home or to a designated reception center as the emergency dictates.
