We also have 3 trip buses so our teams travel in style when we compete away from home. These buses travel over 34,000 miles a year.

Winter Bus Dress Rules

The Transportation Department reminds you of our winter dress policy for all of our buses in the district. We require that Butte County students riding any route or trip bus to wear warm clothes, socks, shoes, and a winter coat in order to board the bus. Although we attempt to maintain an excellent and safe fleet of buses, a school bus may experience a problem that forces it to shut down during the route or trip. During the winter months our weather can be extremely cold and unpredictable. Therefore, we ask that you make sure your children are properly dressed for the winter weather. Students riding an extracurricular trip bus are also required to bring a warm blanket. Students who are not properly dressed may be denied bus boarding and transportation services.
