Transportation Information and Guidelines for Student and Parents Booklet Distribution Update

Transportation Information and Guidelines for Student and Parents Booklet Distribution Update STEO’s guideline booklet remains an excellent resource for students, parents, school staff and bus drivers, providing valuable information about bus safety, student safety programs, stakeholder roles and responsibilities and inclement weather – to name a few. The booklet is designed to provide families with the tools and information they need to help ensure that students enjoy the best and safest ride possible to and from school each day.

Recognizing that many of our schools and families are shifting to electronic access to information and with our environmental footprint in mind, STEO will no longer be providing a hard copy of the Transportation Information and Guidelines for Students and Parents booklet to schools for distribution to all students. STEO will continue to provide hard copies of the booklet to elementary schools for distribution to the parents of Kindergarten students, as part of the Kindergarten/First Time Rider Packages. If schools or families wish to have additional hard copies provided for staff or students, please reach out to STEO and we would be more than happy to send some your way!

A soft copy of the Transportation Information and Guidelines booklet is available on the STEO website under Student Information. For convenience, we have also included a link to the booklet under the School Login Page for school staff.

With thanks for your ongoing support to student safety!
