We are dedicated to providing a safe, effective and efficient service and most importantly, always being mindful of the safety and well-being of the students.
Safety is always paramount for the SVSD Transportation Team and our professional school bus drivers.
Bus drivers meet all State and Federal certification requirements and go through extensive training and First Aid/CPR Training, before students are ever on board. All buses are equipped with fire extinguishers, first aid kits, body fluid clean up kits, tire chains, and some also have sanders. Drivers are well trained in the use of all emergency equipment and drive in all types of weather. In addition, each bus is outfitted with a two-way radio for speedy communication and the latest technology in student transportation with Smart Tag.
Our employees are concerned about your child's safety. Bus behavior and exit drills are stressed and parent cooperation is earnestly sought. Your child will not be let off at an unassigned bus stop unless specific instructions from the parent are given in writing. With Smart Tag, you will know when and where your student tagged onto and off the school bus. Visit the Smart Tag page to learn more.
Our basic rule is "Children will be where parents expect them to be."
