Bus Stop Procedures

As you are all aware, traffic has increased significantly in and around Mahopac over the past few years. This increase has had a negative impact on the Mahopac School District Bus Schedules, causing the district to adjust routes so that students arrive at their schools at the required time. In order to insure that all buses arrive at their schools in a timely fashion, we are requesting that all students be at their bus stops before the arrival of their bus.

However, students at bus stops along highly trafficked roads should stand 30 to 60 feet back from the bus stop. They should only advance when directed by the bus driver who has come to a complete stop with flashing red lights.

We can no longer wait for students to exit houses and cars since this is impacting arrival times and causing backups with our commuting public.
