Bus Rules

Bus Policies are in accordance with the local bus companies and school districts

Set policies are determined by the local school districts as far as eligibility for student transportation to Saints Peter & Paul.  It is usually a determined mile distance from home to school.  Those who live along a route that has been declared ‘hazardous’ are also eligible for busing.  The student’s transportation policies and procedures of the local education agencies responsible for busing students are applicable to students bused to and from SSPP, as are the laws and regulations for parochial schools in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Rules and regulations affecting bus students are strictly enforced.  Please review the following with your child so that problems do not occur during the school year.  The bus company has the right to terminate any student for following the rules and regulations set forth below:

  • Students are not allowed to ‘bus swap’ at any time.
