Helpful Hints for Parents

The Ichabod Crane Central School District Transportation Department offers these helpful hints for parents. Thank you for helping to keep your student’s bus ride a safe and pleasant one.

  • Parents please be sure your student is at the bus stop 5 minutes prior to the arrival of the bus.
  • Please do not wait on porches or in garages where the driver cannot see the student. If waiting in a car, please get out and be ready to board as soon as you see the bus approaching. 
  • Skateboards and any other large objects are not allowed on the bus for obvious safety reasons.  This does not include instruments; however, if your student is bringing an instrument on the bus, they may have to keep it in their lap as seating on the buses cannot be compromised. 
  • There is no eating or drinking on the bus.  If a child is choking, or has an allergic reaction that they are unaware of, this can cause a life threatening situation.
  • Absolutely no glass containers of any kind are allowed on the bus.
  • Balloons of any type are not allowed on the bus. Toys are not allowed on the bus.
  • If your child is bringing sports equipment, all equipment including balls must be kept in the sports bag.
  • Students should always observe classroom behavior on the bus and should not stand up until the bus has come to a complete stop. Students should always keep their hands to themselves and please do not use inappropriate language on the bus.
