Your bus pass will tell you the location and time that the bus will come to pick you up. It is important that you be at the stop early and ready to go. Every bus has a specific route and timetable it must keep, so if you are late the bus driver is likely to assume you are not coming to school that day and leave you.
If you are there early and are certain your bus is late (rather than that you missed the bus), it is important that you remain at the stop and wait for the bus, unless you can get a ride to school immediately. If you are late to school because of a late bus, your tardy will be excused because you were where you needed to be when you needed to be there and the fault lies with us. You are not penalized. However, if you miss the bus or drive yourself and there are traffic issues, your tardy is unexcused since SCS cannot take responsibility for your individually arranged transportation.
