Policies and Procedures - Transportation

Bus Routes

Click for information concerning bus transportation for the Quantico schools:

Cars and Other Vehicles

Registered cars and other vehicles may be brought on to school grounds only with the permission of the administration.

  • Vehicles must be operated in compliance with school rules and state and local law.
  • All licensed student drivers will park their vehicles in the overflow parking lot adjacent to Purvis Road.
  • Students are required to register all vehicles that will be parked on school property.
  • Students found in violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary action.

Skateboards, roller blades/skates are not permitted on school property at anytime.

Bicycles

A bicycle rack has been placed at the rear of the school near the exit of the Gym.

  • The rack can accommodate a total of 48 bikes. The reason for limiting the use to Thomason Park was based on safety considerations, specifically traffic on Purvis Road.
  • Students must secure their bicycle using a bicycle lock.
  • Students not securing their bicycles may lose the privilege of riding their bikes to school.

School Bus Behavior Policy

Daily bus service is only provided for students living on Quantico Marine Base

Students who ride the bus should:

  • Be on time.
  • Arrive at their bus stop at least 5-10 minutes before the regular pickup time.
  • Stand away from the road, not stand on the traveled portion of the roadway while waiting for the bus.
  • Observe proper conduct.
  • Respect the property of others.
  • Wait until the bus has stopped and then walk up to the front door. Students should not run near a moving bus.
  • Board the bus in an orderly fashion.
  • Use the bus stop closest to their home. Walking to a friend's house to catch a bus often causes overcrowding at a given stop.

While riding the bus students should:

  • Obey instructions of bus driver and/or bus attendant.
  • Be seated immediately.
  • Remain seated.
  • Share seats equally.
  • Be courteous.
  • Respect property.
  • Keep hands and head inside bus.
  • Keep aisles clear.
  • Observe good conduct
  • Remain seated until bus comes to a full stop.
  • Leave the bus in an orderly manner, students in the front seats first.
  • Avoid loitering around the bus.
  • Cross at the front of the bus when the driver has signaled that it is safe to do so.

If a disciplinary problem should occur in the afternoon, and the problem is such that, in the judgment of the driver, it is unsafe to proceed, the driver may return to the school to seek immediate disciplinary action and/or assistance.   Bus drivers are instructed to report any infractions to the school principal.

Students must have a written request from the parent to go to a stop other than their regularly scheduled stop for their regularly scheduled bus. This written request is subject to approval of the school principal. No change will be made in the location of bus stops or bus routing without approval of the Department of Transportation. No change in the student's bus assignment may be made without the permission of the school principal and the Department of Transportation.
