Children in Pre Kindergarten through third grade cannot be dropped off without an adult at the stop to receive the child. This adult does not have to be the parent. A parent may approve a younger individual such as a sibling, friend, etc. who may be less than adult age but satisfies the parent with the maturity level to be responsible for the young student.
The bus driver must never drop a Pre Kindergarten through grade 3 student without such supervision.
This child must be brought to the designated location after the run has been completed. The driver must inform dispatch and dispatch must inform CREC immediately upon determination that the adult is not available at the stop to receive the child.
