Bus Rules

The following rules are posted in each bus and enforced for the safety of all passengers and drivers. The bus is considered an extension of the classroom at Palisades Charter High School, so the same rules and acceptable classroom behavior apply to the bus. Please make sure that your student is familar with the rules. Upon the firste event of misconduct, the driver will give a verbal warning to the student. A subsequent violation will be reported to the school's administration. A third violation could result in a warning, a meeting with the driver, school principal and bus supervisor, a temporary suspension, and ultimately permanent suspension.
