At Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools, it's the school communities and parents who share in the responsibility of providing Christ-centred, safe and caring environment for all students. The Transportation Department, an extension of the school communities, focuses on providing a safe environment for students while they commute on the bus to and from school.
Administrative Procedure No. 340: Student Transportation To and From School addresses drop-off of Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Grade 1 students and state:
"No student in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Grade 1 will be released by the bus driver at the student’s designated stop without an approved person, (such as parent/guardian/older sibling/ babysitter/neighbour) being at the drop off point to ensure safety from school, unless the parent has specified otherwise in writing to the principal."
Parent letter and waiver form are sent home at the beginning of the school year.
