Points to keep in mind when using students

 School bus is striving for stable operation by local business operators with safety of students as the first priority. Parents who use the bus (guardian) pay attention to the following and cooperate with safe and stable operation.

  1. Please get on and off from the bus stop. Please understand that the bus stop is located in a location where the bus can be stopped safely, so it may not be close to home.
  2. Do not make a noise or standing while you are on the bus. Both school flights and school flights adjust the route so that the boarding time of the students is as short as possible.
  3. Depending on the weather and road conditions, the bus may be delayed or may be canceled. In case of cancellation, we will contact the student (parent) from the school.
  4. You can use it to go to a high school outside the town, but because school attendance in town is given priority, you may be setting the flight route and time that can not be connected with JR etc etc.
  5. Depending on the entry and exit of child students and changes in road conditions, the route and time of operation may be reviewed in the middle of the fiscal year. In that case, we will announce separately to related students / guardians.
