Kindergarten students may not be discharged from their assigned bus unless a parent or responsible party is present to meet the student at the bus stop. An older sibling (3rd grade or above) who is assigned to ride the same bus may be the responsible party for a kindergarten student. Should no responsible party be present at the bus stop the school bus driver will report this fact to the Transportation dispatch office and the kindergarten student will be returned to their school.

Employees and students of Scottsdale Unified School District can do their part to improve Arizona's air quality while reducing traffic congestion. Car-pooling, using public transit systems, riding school buses, biking, and walking to work and school are just some of the ways we can cut down on air pollution and traffic.
Additional information, including the name of your Trip Reduction Program (TRP) site coordinator, is available on employee bulletin boards, or by contacting the Transportation Department at 480-484-8550. Your site coordinator can explain the program and help you set up shared rides. The District guarantees a ride home for those who are participating in shared rides. It provides car-pooling spaces at each site, as well as bike racks.
The superintendent urges employees to reduce the use of their vehicles whenever possible.
