Parent's Responsibility

The general behavior of the student while traveling is the parents responsibility. Parents should work with the school and the Kids Care Staff to put in place a consistent student behavior management plan. Parents by going over the "Student Responsibilities" is a great way to let your child know what is expected of them.

  1. Make sure the student is ready for pick-up 15 minutes before the Van is due to arrive, as the driver cannot delay the service by waiting for late students.

  2. Take your child to the Van when able.

  3. Make sure a responsible person is home to meet the Van 10-15 minutes before the drop-off time.

  4. Tell the driver of any changes to transport that needs to be made on both a daily and ongoing basis (e.g. sickness, cancellation of after school activities, etc.)

  5. Keep current contact detail of the Van Driver, School and Care facility on hand at all times.

  6. Tell the driver of any information that may affect the safe transport of your child. This is extremely important! (e.g.. change in legal status of parent or guardian, restraining orders, custody order held by either parent, etc.)

  7. Parent should work with the school and the Kids Care Staff to put in place a consistent student behavior management plan. A parent by going over the “Student Responsibilities” is a great way to let your child know what is expected of them.


TEACH YOUR CHILD TO GET ON AND OFF THE VAN SAFELY:

  • When getting on the Van, stay away from the danger zone and wait for the driver's signal. Board the bus one at a time.

  • When getting off the Van, look before stepping off the bus to be sure no cars are passing on the shoulder (side of the road). Move away from the Van.

  • Before crossing the street, take five "giant steps" out from the front of the Van, or until the driver's face can be seen (A). Wait for the driver to signal that it's safe to cross.

  • Look left-right-left when coming to the edge of the Van to make sure traffic is stopped. Keep watching traffic when crossing.

SAFETY STEPS YOU CAN TAKE:

  • Supervise children to make sure they get to the stop on time, wait far away from the road, and avoid rough play.

  • Teach your child to ask the driver for help if he/she drops something near the van. If a child bends down to pick up something, the driver cannot see him/her and the child may be hit by the bus. Have your child use a backpack or book bag to keep loose items together.

  • Make sure clothing and backpacks have no loose drawstrings or long straps, to get caught in the handrail or van door.
