Please make certain that your student is at the morning pick-up point at least 5 minutes before the bus arrival time. The bus driver cannot wait for stragglers and is responsible for getting the other students to school safely and on time so your child should be waiting at the bus stop prior to its arrival. Do not flag down or "pull over" the bus if you have missed it as such attempts create the potential for a serious traffic accident. We recommend you proceed to another bus stop location along the route to drop your student off.
Harvard-Westlake standards (outlined in the Student Handbook) apply on the bus as well. Drivers are authorized to take the ID cards of any student whose conduct is inappropriate or a threat to safety. The matter will be reported to the student's dean for possible further action. In case of suspension from the bus, you will be responsible for the transportation of your child (and will not receive a refund).
Be sure to review the School Bus Safety Rules and Guidelines as well as the COVID-19 Safety Protocols with your child.
Students are highly encouraged to use the smart phone enabled HW ID Card App available at hw.com/apps.
