Information for Elementary Parents
For the saftey of our students, it will be our practice to have a parent, guardian, or sibling meet or acknowledge your student when the bus driver drops them off at your student's bus stop. If you feel it is not necessary to have a parent, guardian or sibling meet the bus, please put your request in writing to the Transportation Department. If we do not have written consent to drop off your student with out someone present or visible, the bus driver will take your child back to the Elementary school and it will be your responsiblity to pick up your child.
School Bus Saftey
The School bus is an extension of the classroom. Please take time to go over the bus rules with your child. Let them know that they need to listen to the bus driver and follow their directions to keep them and all the children on the bus safe. From time to time, the bus driver may find the need to change or assign students seats. This is up to the discretion of the driver. Remember that your child's saftey is our utmost concerm. Please assist us in creating a successfulbus ride for you and your children.
Once routes are established, drop off times are approximatley 10-45 minutes after the students are dismissed from school; depending on where they live. If you need to change your students pick up or drop off locations during the school year, please be advised that changes take 5 days to become effective. These changes can often effect an entire bus route.
Our primary responsibility is the safety and well being of each student that rides a Williamson Central School District school bus. We are regulated by the NYS Education Department, the NYS Department of Transportation and the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles. Our transportation staff (from the Supervisor, to the secretary, drivers, monitors and mechanics) are professional people who value the children that they transport. The Williamson Central School Transportation Department takes pride in its safety record and its D.O.T. ratings.

Advisory: Stop for Flashing Red Lights
Each day, an estimated 50,000 drivers pass school buses that are stopped and have their red lights flashing in the State of New York.
Not only is passing a school bus against the law, it's extremely dangerous and could result in a child being struck.
A ticket for passing a stopped school bus could lead to five points on your license and also a $250 fine.
Please help us protect our children. DO NOT pass a stopped school bus.
