Parents called upon to address children regarding behavior on or near school busses

The School Bus Inspection Section is appealing to parents to address their children with respect to behavior on and in the vicinity of school busses.


Parents are being called upon to address this behavior before somebody gets hurt. A school bus driver must focus on driving and is not able to address students who are misbehaving.

There have been some incidents of egg throwing in the vicinity of the St. Maarten Academy and Sheik Supermarket.

School bus drivers are asked to report the misbehavior to the respective school principal and the department.

Students who behave in a disruptive manner on the school bus are creating a dangerous situation which puts the other children and motorists in danger thereby creating a safety hazard.

The bus driver must focus his or her attention on the road and stay on schedule. Students need to act responsibly and parents need to address this matter especially those who use the school bus.

School busses are privately owned vehicles and parents will be held responsible for their child/children’s actions.

Anybody who sees any unusual behavior on or with a school bus is encouraged to report this to the Inspection Section at telephone number 542-4511 or 542-4509 or call the Police if it is an immediate danger.
