Bus Change Requests

It is the policy of Hardin ISD that students who utilize HISD buses will ONLY be transported to their primary address in Ascender.  The only exception to this is to facilitate a court order.  Emergency situations will be considered on a case by case basis and must be approved by both HISD Transportation and the Campus Administration in consultation with the Central Office.  Thank you for your cooperation and help in accomplishing this.

 

Please be advised that if you need to change your students method of transportation home from bus to car rider or car rider to bus please contact the appropriate campus by email:

Hardin Elementary School

7th & 8th Grades at Hardin Junior High

For AM changes: The request must be submitted by 4 PM one day prior to the change. Any request received after 4 PM on the previous day will not be accepted.

For PM changes: The request must be submitted before 2 PM on the day of the change. Any request received after 2 PM on the day of the change will not be accepted.

 

Bus Behavior Expectations

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Please be advised that riding the bus is a privilege, not a right. 
  • Student riders are assigned to ONE bus route. 
    • Please avoid changing how the student transports to and from school as much as possible. Consistency helps assure the safe and effective transportation of all students. 
    • In case of emergency, arrangements must be made with the campus. Otherwise, students will ride their assigned bus. 
    • Students will NOT be allowed to change buses for social reasons or requests.

 

Students MUST: 

  • Follow the driver's and/or monitor's directions at all times. 
  • Enter and leave the bus or van in an orderly manner at the designated stop. 
  • Keep hands, feet, books, instrument cases, and other objects out of the aisle. 
  • Not deface the bus, van, or its equipment. 
  • Not put head, hands, arms, or legs out of the window, hold any object out of the window, or throw objects within or out of the bus. 
  • Not possess or use any form of tobacco/e-cigarette on school buses. 
  • Observe all usual school rules as stated in the Student Handbook / Code of Conduct. 
  • Be seated while the vehicle is moving at ALL TIMES.
  • Wear the seat belt if the bus is equipped with seat belts. 
  • Wait for the driver's signal upon leaving the bus or van and before crossing in front of the vehicle. 

 

Failure to follow these Expectations will be treated as a Safety Violation. 

Bus riding privileges may be revoked as a consequence.
