• Transporting Musical Instruments

    All instruments must be kept in their case and with the student.  Students who have instruments that are taller than the seat must sit next to the instrument toward the front of the bus so as not to block the driver's visibility.

    • Alto Saxophone
    • Bass Clarinet
    • Bassoon
    • Clarinet
    • Flute

    The following instruments, in their case, are allowed only on music trips and not on a daily route bus:

    • 4/4 Cello 
    • Drums
    • Sousaphone
    • String Bass


  • Items Not Allowed on the Bus:

    • Students may NOT bring large musical instruments onto the bus. Review Musical Instrument Guidelines on the Transportation webpage menu.
    • Any object that cannot be safely controlled by the student in the seat, or upright on the floor between their knees is not allowed. The bus driver has the authority to make the final decision if the object can be on the bus or not.
    • Items that cannot be safely transported on a pupil's lap, or stowed in an empty seat, or directly under the seat, are prohibited.
