The Pennsbury Board of School Directors provides transportation "to and from" school to all pupils (public and non-public) as follows:
Students in Grades K-5 shall be transported to and from school if they:
- Live more than 1.0 mile from school
- Live 1.0 mile or less from school but have hazardous walking conditions.
Middle School Students
Students in Grades 6-8 shall be transported to and from school if they:

Students in Grades 9-12 shall be transported to and from school if they:
- Live more than 1.8 mile from school

In addition, certain transportation is furnished if hazardous walking conditions exist. "Hazardous walking conditions" will be determined by the Administration in each individual case and approved by the Board of School Directors. School bus stops are located in the best interest of the children for safety purposes.
Children should be informed of the following School Policy:
A. School Bus Transportation is a privilege, not a right.
B. Students are required to be at designated stops a least five (5) minutes prior to scheduled stop and to respect private property surrounding the stop.
C. Students must obey the bus driver and abide by the rules that are posted on each bus.
D. Parents are requested not to ask that their children ride other than their regularly assigned bus.
If you desire your child to leave the bus at other than his/her regular assigned stop, a written note must be furnished to the driver and the principal.
Bus transportation is provided at the secondary level for after-school activities such as band practice, play practice, subject matter instruction and athletics.
