Reminder: Bus Code of Conduct

This week, all Deerfield students who ride the school bus in the morning and/or afternoon will bring home the Deerfield Bus Code of Conduct. This document states the Expected and Never Allowed bus behaviors, as well as the sequence of consequences students earn if Never Allowed behaviors occur. Once you have reviewed the behaviors and consequences with your child, please sign the Code of Conduct and return it to school. Thank you for your support in helping to ensure that our bus rides are safe for all students.
