ARRIVAL & DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
Students who are car riders will be dropped off in front of the building by the main entrance. We ask that no one is dropped off before 7:45 am as they will be unsupervised. Bus riders are dropped off at the back of the school.
We will continue using Driveline for car riders as we did last year. Parents will remain in their cars and display their driveline number in their passenger side or front window. A staff member will enter your codes and students will be dismissed from their classrooms. For safety reasons, please have students enter/exit cars from the passenger side.
Please contact Durham School Services at 847-543-9244 if there will be changes to your child’s transportation.
All routes have a designated start time. Once the route begins buses do not wait at each stop. Please have your child at your designated bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled pick-up time. Keep in mind when the weather and road conditions are bad, it will affect the bus schedule.
During the winter months when heavy snowfall can sometimes block a bus stop, the driver can drop off or pick up at the nearest cleared driveway.
The following contact at Durham is available if you have questions or concerns regarding school transportation:

School Bus Rules & Safety Tips
On Bus Camera Notice
For the safety of our employees and students, Durham School Services reserves the right to monitor and document student behavior on buses utilizing recording devices. There is no reasonable expectation of privacy on-board Durham buses, and students’ actions and words may be monitored with video and/or audio as permitted by federal, state, and local regulations. Student conduct that is recorded and prohibited by regulations or school district policy will result in disciplinary action. This policy will apply to all transportation services provided by Durham School Services.
