The Centralia School District Transportation Department follows a procedure
called “Must Be Met” for all kindergarten students. It requires each
bus driver to release kindergarten students ONLY to an identified adult
at the bus stop. If no adult is present, the student will be returned
to the Centralia School District Transportation Department, or to the school to await parent
pick-up. This process is used for all
As part of the process, each kindergarten
student will be issued a bus name tag to be worn on their backpack.
The name tag identifies the child's parent/guardian name, route number,
bus stop and emergency contact.
to have alternate arrangements (such as allowing the kindergarten
student to exit the bus with an older sibling) must complete a waiver form and return it to the school Office Professional. This must be done for each school year.
Thank you for your help and cooperation in ensuring the safety of our kindergarten students.
you have any questions about this process, please contact your child's
school office, or the Transportation Department at 360-330-7626.
