PRE-TRIP INSPECTION

Safety of our students is our number one priority. Safety begins with the driver. Drivers are required to inspect their school bus every morning. Click HERE to see the form our drivers use every morning when inspecting their school bus. Our Fleet Manager assists the drivers by inspecting items under the hood such as oil, coolant, belts, hoses, etc. 

VISUAL BRAKE INSPECTION

The Illinois Department of Transportation requires that a visial brake inspection be performed on every school bus operated in Illinois at least once a year or every 10,000 miles, whichever occurs first. A completed School Bus Brake Inspection Report must be presented to the Certified Safety Tester each time a school bus is taken to an Official Testing Station for a safety inspection. Click HERE to see a copy of what the report looks like. 

SCHOOL BUS INSPECTIONS

The Illinois Department of Transportation is responsible for regulating and overseeing both scheduled and non-scheduled school bus inspections. Scheduled inspections are conducted at approxmately 250 official testing stations across Illinois. In addition to these scheduled inspections, over 5,500 non-scheduled inspections are conducted by IDOT Vehicle Inspectors annually. Non-scheduled or "unannounced" inspections are performed wherever a school bus may be stored or parked. 

FORM REVIEW

Bus inspection forms are on file with the Office of Transportation Services located at: 1370 N. Riverwoods Road behind Daniel Wright Junior High School. If you wish to view a copy of a bus inspection, you may do so by stopping by anytime between 6:30 AM and 2:30 PM, Monday through Friday during the normal school year. 

Kindergarten Transportation

Kindergarten Transportation

Kindergarten Bus Orientation, 8/23/16 (html)

For the safety of your kindergarten child, it is our established practice to have a parent/guardian or sibling meet your kindergarten child when the bus driver drops them off at your child's bus stop. Please make certain that they know their way home or meet them at the bus stop. The safety of your child is the number one concern of the Office of Transportation Services once they are dropped off. We strongly encourage you to be at your child's bus stop. 

All kindergarten students will be picked up and dropped off as close to their home as possible. However, should there be multiple kindergarten students within a few houses, one central bus stop will be used. We ask that students be outside at their bus stop at least 5 minutes prior to the scheduled pick up time. 

It is recommended that you place an ID tag on your child's backpack. The information should include: child's name, address, phone number, and day care information (where to be picked up and dropped off daily). Please consider taking the time to teach your child his/her address and phone number, so in the event his/her ID tag is lost, the driver will be able to get your child home. 

If your child is a bus rider, it is important to have your child ride the bus the first week of school. This will allow the driver to know who will be riding so the route can be adjusted to get the students to and from school in a timely manner. 

Please have your child utilize a backpack so that his/her hands are free to grab handrails when getting on and off the bus. When exiting the bus, be aware of clothing with drawstrings; also, don't have toys attached or hanging down backpacks as these items could get caught in the handrails of doors of the bus. 

Let your child know that they will need to listen to the bus driver and follow their directions to keep them safe. 

If you need to contact the Office of Transportation Services the first few weeks of school, please understand that there is a high call volume of calls during this time, and it may be difficult to get through. Our phone number: (847) 295-8258.
