Bus Transportation Service
ISPP offers a limited daily service on request and at additional cost to pick students up in the morning and drop students off in the afternoon. Seats in buses/vans are limited and availability is not guaranteed to all students, particularly those who live outside established routes.
The registration form must be completed and submitted online at least five working days before service begins.
Preference is given to students who register for two-way service and to siblings.
Charges for 2016-17
Zone A (within 5km from school): $3.00 one way per day
Zone B (any other area): $4.00 one way per day
A discount of 5% will be given to students registering for the two-way service if payment is made for the full year in advance. No refund will be available for early withdrawal.
Charges are billed and payable by term, semester and annual, in advance, based on school fee payment option chosen by parents. Charges are subject to change without notice at the discretion of the school.
If payment is not made by the due date, parents will be given notice and service will be withdrawn if payment is not made within ten days. Please note that receipts for overdue accounts will be allocated to fees before transportation charges.
For those registering during the year, charges will be prorated for the days the service is used.
For those withdrawing during the year, refund may be made for unused weeks, subject to at least five working days notice, in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
No refund will be given for individual days on which the service isn't used.
Only registered students will be allowed to board the bus/van.
Pre-Early Years (PEY) to Grade 5 students must be met by a parent or designated person approved by parents. Students will be taken back to school if the proper person is not there for drop-off.
Students are not allowed to alight anywhere other than their home or School-designated drop-off point unless authorized by parents and by the school.
Students are required to act in a safe and appropriate manner whilst on the bus and to follow the instructions of the bus monitor and driver at all times, for example, remaining seated, behaving respectfully, and refraining from eating or littering.
Students must be at the collection point promptly. Buses are only able to wait for no longer than two minutes at each stop in order to keep the schedule for all students and assure arrival time at school.
All reasonable steps will be taken to ensure that the vehicles are well-maintained and that drivers have appropriate training and experience, both for the school-operated and sub-contracted vehicles. The school will plan routes and follow schedules as efficiently as possible. All motor vehicles employed in transporting pupils shall be adequately covered by public liability insurance in such amount as the board of school trustees shall require.
Parents are responsible for properly informing the Elementary or Secondary School offices of emergency contact details. If the school or its employees or contractors are unable to contact the parents or alternative contact person, parents are required to authorize the school to take such action as necessary to safeguard the student, including arranging emergency medical treatment, the cost of which will be met by the parents.
Arrival and Departure
Buses/vans arrive at school from 7:15am and depart at 2.55pm.
