Bus Route Information

With concern for privacy and security, bus run information is not being published on LCPS web site. Elementary, Middle and High School bus information is student specific and will be given to each child's parent or guardian in their school information packet.

If you have not received bus information by the end of August, contact your school or transportation at 586-783-6550 option 3.

Campaign to Prevent Bullying and Harassment

Growing Respect on Your Bus

The Information on this page and the attached brochure are provided to L'Anse Creuse by PTSI, External LinkPupil Transportation Safety Institute.

All children deserve a safe and enjoyable bus ride. No child should have to endure put-downs, teasing, threats, harassment, or bullying on the bus ride. We will not tolerate such behavior.

Our job is to protect your children, and we take it seriously. We are proud of the safety record of school buses. We want every child to arrive at school safely, ready to learn.

Guidelines

  • RESPECT your driver & attendant
  • Always follow their instructions - their job is to protect everyone on the bus.
  • RESPECT other students
  • No put downs or bullying
  • Keep your hands to yourself
  • RESPECT your own safety
  • Stay in your seat - you're much safer when properly seated
  • Follow all safety procedures when getting on or off the bus - stay alert for other motorists.
  • If you drop something near the bus, leave it there - get an adult to help.
  • Important: If anyone or anything makes you feel threatened or unsafe on the bus or at the bus stop, always tell your driver, attendant, or another adult.
