School Bus Policy

1.    Please arrive 5 minutes prior to the designated school bus pick-up and drop-off times. In order for the school buses to arrive at their destinations on time, drivers and bus monitors will not wait for late arrivals. You can find the bus schedule on the ISNS website.

2.    Students from K5 to Grade 5 MUST be picked up by a parent or guardian (along with Parent/Guardian ID cards) at their assigned bus stops. Students in Grade 6 to Grade 12 who will not be met by a parent or guardian at their assigned bus stop MUST sign the Letter of Permission for School Bus Drop-off and return to the School Bus Coordinators at the reception desk on the first floor (1F).

3.    The Letter of Permission for Bus Drop-Off must be signed each school year.

4.    To ensure the orderliness and efficiency of the school buses, we kindly ask Parents/Guardians to read the ISNS School Bus Rules and review with your child(ren).  In addition, each bus has a copy of the ISNS School Bus Rules for reference. Click here to read the rules.

5.    Please note that bus schedules may be adjusted from August to September in order to mitigate increasing traffic congestions. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to stay updated during this time period.

6.    Parents/Guardians are not allowed to ride the school bus.

7.    Students who are not on the school bus list are not allowed to ride the bus due to strict safety concerns.

8.    All Parents/Guardians MUST carry their Parent ID Card when picking up your child(ren) from the bus stop. For safety purposes, bus monitors will not leave a student with someone without this proper identification.

9.    Please keep your cell phone on during the pick-up and drop-off period, in case of any emergency.

10. Parents/Guardians of current school bus riders must confirm with the bus coordinators at least one day in advance if they would like to change buses due to events associated with the school.

11. If a bus accident occurs while on route to or from the school, parents will be notified immediately, and specific actions will be taken to first address the safety of the students and then assess the accident. An official explanation will be sent to parents via email within 12 hours of the incident.
