Lost jackets, lost lunch boxes, lost cell phones, lost backpacks.
Every day thousands of students ride to and from school on over 60 buses. If just one student from each bus forgets something each day there will be hundreds of items piled into a box that no one will ever collect. And that would just be the first week of school.
The Transportation Department's procedure is to have your child's driver hold onto anything found on the bus for three days before turning it over to the school. Students should first check with the school bus driver to determine if a lost item has been found on the bus and whether the driver still has the item or it has been turned it over to the school.
If your child has left something on the bus please have them check with the driver the next time they board the bus. Radio communication with the drivers is limited to student transportation matters, ie. transfers, lost students or emergency communications. Sorry, a missing jacket doesn't fall under "emergency communications", and we are prohibited from giving out a driver's personal phone number.
