• Bus Transportation & Safety

    The North Allegheny School District will provide transportation for all students in accordance with the School Laws of Pennsylvania. Students will be notified of their assigned bus stop by mail prior to the start of the school year. Students should arrive at their bus stop at least five minutes before the scheduled bus arrival time. In rare occasions, a bus may be delayed. Students should wait at least 30 minutes before leaving their bus stop, unless a parent determines that weather conditions will not allow waiting.

    Courteous and respectful behavior on the school bus and at bus stops is a matter of safety. All students who take advantage of District transportation are asked to obey the following rules:

    1) Do not play or stand in the street while waiting for the bus or after leaving the bus.
    2) Board and depart the bus in an orderly manner.
    3) Always cross 15 ft. in front of the bus. Cross only when red lights are flashing and traffic is stopped.
    4) Remain visible to the bus driver at all times. Stay in assigned seats.
    5) Observe classroom conduct on the bus. Talk quietly. Be polite. Do not use abusive language.
