Branson Public Schools offer transportation service (Bus Barn: 334-7986) to pupils in this district. It is not only the transportation department’s responsibility in this district to make each trip a safe and trouble-free trip, but is also the student’s responsibility, with help from his/her parents, to learn the riding rules and obey them in order to continue to use this service. So, “Don’t Lose Your Riding Privilege,” and let us all work together to provide a safe environment for all students on the school bus.

Students should observe the following regulations on the bus:
1. Observe same conduct as in the classroom.
2. Be courteous, use no profane language.
3. Do not eat or drink on the bus.
4. Keep the bus clean.
5. Cooperate with the driver.
6. Do not smoke.
7. Do not be destructive.
8. Stay in your seat.
9. Keep head, hands and feet inside the bus.
10. Bus driver is authorized to assign seats.
11. No toys, trading cards, electronic devices, etc., on the bus.
12. No flowers or balloons will be allowed on the bus.
Transportation handbook is located on the district website.
If a student receives a bus discipline notice, a parent or guardian must sign the notice before the
child is allowed back on the bus.


A bus change occurs when a student wants to ride a different bus or ride a bus for the first time. Due to the number of students already on the roster and riding buses, this change shall take place only for baby-sitting reasons (parents not home) or emergency reasons.
Procedure For Bus Change:
Parent or legal guardian should write a note to the child’s school office.
Specify in the note:
1. Child’s first and last name
2. Child’s destination
3. Bus number
4. Student’s teacher or room number
5. Reason for change.
If a note cannot be written, a call must be made before 2:30 p.m. on the day of the change. If parents are going to pick their child up at school, they should send a note or call the office. Students who do not have a note will be sent home on their regular bus.
