Certain laws and regulations govern the operation of school buses. Transportation by school buses will be provided for those students living one and one-half miles or more from the school according to S.C. Department of Education guidelines. Buses stop every two-tenths of a mile when necessary.
Denise Watson is the transportation supervisor for our school. She is responsible for bus routes, drivers, and school bus regulations. She is located at Silver Bluff High School and may be contacted using the following phone numbers: 803-652-8102, 803-652-8100, or 803-279-1373.
Redcliffe Elementary School does not accept transportation changes over the telephoneyou’re your child’s safety. Please send a dated note with your signature and address to which he/she is going in your child’s agenda or folder, send an email to your classroom teacher or me, or send a fax requesting the transportation change.
1. Follow the bus driver’s directions.
2. Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
3. Sit in the seat and remain seated while the bus is in motion.
4. Do not use profane or obscene language, gestures, or make loud and distracting noises. Students should talk quietly with the person in the same bus seat.
5. Avoid damage to seats, windows, or bus equipment.

IF A STUDENT CHOOSES TO BREAK BUS RULES
First Offense Warning to the student and letter to parent advising them of such misconduct, unless the offense is of a nature, which in the judgment of school officials warrants a suspension from riding the school bus.
Second Offense Suspension from riding the bus for a period of two days and a letter to parents. The suspension letter will be mailed to the parent and the student will also receive one to deliver.
Third Offense Suspension from riding the bus for a period of three days and a letter to parents. The suspension letter will be mailed to the parent and the student will also receive one to deliver.
Fourth Offense Suspension from riding the bus for a period of five days and a letter to parents. The suspension letter will be mailed to the parent and the student will also receive one to deliver.
Fifth Offense Suspension from riding the bus for a period of ten days and a letter to parents. The suspension letter will be mailed to the parent and the student will also receive one to deliver. A conference at the end of this period between parent, administrator, bus supervisor, bus driver, and student will be required before bus privileges may be restored.
Sixth Offense If after a fifth offense, a student persists in uncontrollable conduct while riding a school bus to and from school, (s)he will then be suspended from riding a school bus for the remainder
of the school year. In such cases, all circumstances will be thoroughly reviewed by school officials before action is taken. Once the action is taken, it may be appealed only to the Area
5 Advisory Council and the Aiken County Board of Education.
When a student makes it necessary to suspend him/her from riding the bus, it is the sole responsibility of the parent to transport the student. The parent must comply with regular school hours. If the student is repeatedly tardy or not picked up on time, the suspension may result in school suspension. We need and must have the complete cooperation of all parents.
If the misconduct is of such a nature that the driver cannot finish the trip, he may return to school so that immediate contact may be made with a parent, or he may stop to telephone the principal or the bus supervisor.
1. Students will dismount school buses and report directly to their assigned areas where a teacher will be on duty from 7:00 a.m. until 7:30 a.m.
2. Students who need to pay lunch money should go directly to the cafeteria and then report to their area.
3. When the 7:30 a.m. bell rings, students may enter their classrooms.
4. Upon dismissal from school at 2:15 p.m., students are to walk directly to their school bus in the bus parking lot. Students are expected to follow all established school rules of conduct while on the campus before and after the regular school day hours.
