Rules & Procedures

SCE Traffic Flow Plan

To facilitate the flow of traffic, we will implement the following traffic procedures. This will begin the first day of school. Please read the information below. If you have any questions, please call the front office or ask your child’s teacher at our Meet the Teachers event. We have 5 school buses. Cars will utilize the back circle drive as well as the front drive for both arrival and dismissal times.

Student Dismissal Procedures

In order to have an orderly and safe dismissal, it is imperative for us to know your child’s dismissal plan.  Please fill in the transportation form so that we will know how your child is to get home. This will be considered your child’s “regular way” home. Every student MUST have a “regular way” of going home.  Unless the teacher receives a written note, the student will follow the directions you indicate here. All transportation changes must be sent to the school in writing and given to the teacher. In emergency situations, the change in transportation can be faxed to the school (281-634-3799) before 2:00 p.m. Please follow up with a phone call (281-634-3680) to verify receipt of fax. If you e-mail the teachers, please request a response so you know the email was received and read.

Drop-Off / Pick-Up Procedures

• Follow Traffic Flow Plan. Do not cut off traffic by turning and coming back across Steep Bank Trace.

• Drop Off students along the entire side walk area. Up to 7 different color squares are designated drop-off spots.

• Students may not be picked up after 2:45 P.M. in the front office. Please make plans to pick up students prior to 2:45.

• No change of transportation will be accepted after 2:00 P.M.

• All changes in transportation must be written. Parents must request a reply for all e-mail requests.

• Students may not ride different buses unless it is an emergency situation, they are bus eligible, and it is approved by the district transportation department. An approval request form must be submitted.

 

Note: On rainy days or days that traffic is backed up, no tardies are given.

Rainy Day Dismissal

Rainy Day Dismissal will be called for the following reasons at 2:30 p.m.

 1. Severe rain predicted by radar for 3:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

 2. Anytime lightning occurs at 2:30 p.m.

 3. Weather Watches or Warnings issued for Fort Bend County at 2:30 p.m.

 

Procedures for Notification of Rainy Day Dismissal:

1. Yellow Triangle Rainy Day Dismissal Flag raised

2. Call out and E-mail Blast at 2:30 p.m.

3. Rainy Day Dismissal posted on the SCE Website

4. Twitter Message at 2:30 p.m.

 

Students will be released in waves when the weather is questionable.

Wave 1: If parents are waiting at the school, we release those walkers/bike riders first.

Wave 2: The next groups released are the students that know for sure nobody will be driving up to school. (Even though we do not call a “Rainy Day Dismissal,” some parents drive up to school to pick up their children.) We allow students to use their cell phones to make calls if they are not sure.

Wave 3: Some students choose to wait and see if their ride is in the front or back car rider line. These

are the last students released. This takes some time because the car rider lines are long.

 

All walkers and bikers must have a “Rainy Day Plan” on file with the homeroom teacher.

Bus Transportation Policy

Each student transported by bus has the right to a safe and enjoyable ride to and from school which is free of intimidation, threat, or harassment. Good conduct of all transported students while waiting for the school bus is imperative.  Sienna Crossing Elementary has established student behavior guidelines which apply to all transported students while on the school bus and while in the school bus loading or unloading areas. Each individual student as well as his/her parents, or guardians, are responsible for the behavior of that student while on the school bus and in school bus loading

and unloading areas.

 

Transportation service is a privilege that is granted to the student contingent upon proper behavior according to the District Code of Conduct. A student eligibility to ride the school bus may be suspended or revoked for a violation of school bus safety or conduct policies. Revocation of a student’s bus privileges is not considered a suspension from school.  A student who is involved in serious or repeated incidents on the school bus or loading areas will have riding privileges suspended or revoked. The parent/guardian will then be responsible for ensuring that the student travels safely to and from school.  Building administrators may impose discipline and or suspensions of bus riding privileges whenever a citation is issued.  Parents will be notified by the administration of his or her action regarding the imposition of additional discipline. 

 

Students may not ride different buses unless it is an emergency situation, they are bus eligible, and it is approved by the district transportation department. Only in emergency situations, you will need to send in writing a request to ride a different bus. The Transportation Department will be contacted for approval.

FBISD Attendance Procedures
