The Transportation Department of Cheney Public Schools is committed to efficiently and safely transporting students to and from school.  In order for us to continue to ensure student safety, we will accommodate one pick up and one drop off address per student.  Once again for this school year (2014/2015), all alternate destinations will require a bus pass from your child's schoolIn order to acquire a bus pass to another child's home both students will need a note from both parents / guardians involved and given to the school.  Any note given to the school for an alternate destination must have the drop off address and phone #.  Thank you for working closely with our drivers to better communicate changes in your child's pick up and drop off routine.             
 
Please keep in mind High School and Cheney Middle School students and Windsor and Westwood students must catch their own bus at their school of attendance.  Students are not allowed to walk to another school to catch their bus.

Transportation Department office hours:  6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on days when school is in session. The Transportation office is located just east of Cheney Middle School (across from their parking lot).

         Back to school safety tips for bus riders and their parents ro review:

  • Have a safe place to wait for the bus, away from traffic and the street.  Students should arrive at their stop five minutes before scheduled pick up time.
  • When being dropped off, students should exit the bus and walk ten giant steps away from the bus.  Keep a safe distance between you and the bus.  Remember that the bus driver can see you best when you are away from the bus.
  • Don't start to board the bus until the driver gives the signal that it's okay to approach the bus.
  • Be aware of the street traffic around you.
  • Once you are on the bus, remain seated and follow the driver's directions.  When the driver asks you to do something or to stop doing something, don't make a fuss or talk back.  There's a good reason for it.

         Children who walk to school should also follow safety rules:

  • Mind all traffic signals and/or the crossing guard.  Never cross the street against a light, even if you don't see traffic coming.
  • Walk your bike through intersections.
  • Always walk with a buddy whenever possible.
  • Wear reflective material.  It makes you more visible to street traffic.
