Rules for Riding the Bus

We strive to provide our students with the safest transportation possible. To ensure safety, all students are expected to follow the Flagler Schools Code of Student Conduct, as well as the School Bus Rules listed below. 
Please review these rules with your students, and remind them that riding the school bus is a privilege, not a right.
