Bus Routes

Safe school transportation is considered an integral part of the total educational program within the Martensdale-St.Marys Community School District. The primary purpose of school buses is to transport pupils from home to school and return safely.  The MStM Board of Education recognizes that a safe school bus operation is only possible with the full cooperation of our parents, students, and school staff.  Please read the following duties and responsibilities of school bus passengers carefully and do your part in ensuring an accident-free school bus transportation program for MStM Schools.

To make the bus ride safer, please help your child adhere to these guidelines:

  1. Leave home early enough to keep bus on schedule.
  2. Enter the bus in an orderly manner, and take your seat.
  3. Follow the instructions of the school bus driver.
  4. Remain seated while bus is in motion.
  5. Keep your head, arms, and hands inside the bus.
  6. Keep aisles clear at all times.
  7. Be courteous to bus driver and fellow passengers: Loud voices, profanity, fighting or throwing objects will not be allowed.
  8. Help keep your bus clean.  Use waste paper baskets.
