Parent Responsibility

The District Administration and Board of Education expect parents to provide proper supervision for their children in the morning and afternoon.  If you or authorized family members are not at home or at the bus stop when the bus arrives with your student your child will be returned to the transportation office at 160 Airport Blvd for pickup.  The driver will not exit the bus and knock on your door NOR make a second trip back to the home.   Transportation personnel will make every attempt to contact you or family members to come to the Transportation office to receive your child.  If Transportation personnel are unable to reach you or family members the Aurora Police Department and/or the APS Security office will be notified. If APD or APS Security has to take custody of your student they will then make an attempt to deliver your child at home.  If there is still no one home THEY WILL TRANSPORT YOUR CHILD TO THE APPROPRIATE SOCIAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT, WHERE YOUR STUDENT WILL BE SUPERVISED PENDING YOUR ARRIVAL.   PLEASE NOTE THAT APD / APS SECURITY WILL FILE A REPORT OF THE SITUATION AND MAY ISSUE A TICKET FOR NEGLECT.
