TRANSPORTATION SERVICES & POLICIES
The transportation policies of the Black River Board of Education are aimed at providing a safe, efficient and economical method of transporting students to and from school. Black River Transportation is committed to providing a bus schedule in a way that best serves the educational interest of the students.
The safety of the students will be the first consideration in all matters pertaining to transportation. Black River furnishes transportation in compliance with State Law. Parents must remember that they are responsible for supervision of their students until the student boards the bus in the morning and after the student leaves the bus at the end of the school day.
Students on the bus are under the direct authority of the bus driver. Refusal to follow the established regulations on the bus or refusal to comply with a drivers request to follow the regulations could result in consequences up to and including refusal of transportation services to students by the Principal or Superintendent.
For the safety of the students, the transportation policy requires that students must be picked up at the same location Monday through Friday and must be dropped of at the same location Monday through Friday. While a pick up and drop off point may be different, they must remain consistent. For example, a student may have a pick up located at their home address Monday through Friday and be dropped off Monday through Friday at a latch key environment.
If your student needs a pick up or drop off location other than your home address, you MUST complete a Bus Request Form. This form MUST be filled out yearly. You can pick up this form at any of the school building offices, at the bus garage, on line @ Blackriver.k12.oh.us, click on District Document and select bus pick up and drop off form, or contact the transportation office at (419) 736-3305. This form is also available in the August addition of the Pirate Page mailer.
A student will not be allowed to be picked up or dropped off at an alternative location without this form signed by a parent or guardian. Should a question arise whether or not a parent will be home or the student will be unable to gain access to their home, they will be taken to Black Rivers Latch Key Service located at the Black River Education Center. This is not a free service and parents will be charged until such time that the student is retrieved.
The student handbook has transportation policies listed in them.
