Transportation at Tohono O’odham High School

When it comes to transportation, Tohono O’odham High School prioritizes safety and convenience for our students. Whether it's taking the bus or driving a personal vehicle, we have established guidelines that ensure a smooth and secure journey for everyone. Please take a moment to review our transportation policies.

Bus Transportation

We view school bus transportation as a privilege that requires responsibility and respect. Our bus drivers have the authority to maintain a safe environment and enforce rules for the well-being of all passengers. Students need to understand and follow these guidelines:

Bus Rules and Procedures - Students are expected to adhere to the rules and procedures the bus driver sets. Disruptive behavior, disobedience, or actions that compromise safety will not be tolerated.

Safety First - The safety of our students and drivers is our top priority. Any behavior that endangers safety, regardless of whether it's a first-time offense, may result in the loss of bus privileges.

Accountability - Parents and guardians play a vital role in reinforcing bus safety. If a student's bus privileges are suspended, it is their responsibility to provide transportation to and from school.

Uniform and Dress Code

To maintain a safe and respectful atmosphere on the bus, drivers have the authority to enforce our school's uniform policies. Students are expected to comply with dress code requirements while riding the bus.

Alternate Bus Requests

We understand that circumstances may require students to use an alternate bus. To ensure a smooth transition, please keep these points in mind:

Notification - If your child needs to use an alternate bus, please notify the school office in writing, via email, or by phone before noon (12 p.m.) on the day of the change. Provide a contact number in your communication.

Bus Pass - A bus pass, issued by the school office, is mandatory for students using an alternate bus. This helps us ensure the safety and accuracy of transportation arrangements.

Driving to School

We want to maintain a responsible and organized parking environment for students who choose to drive to school. Here are key points to remember:

Driving Privilege - Driving to school is a privilege that comes with responsibilities. Abusing this privilege may result in its revocation.

Documentation - Students must have a valid driver's license, proof of insurance, parental permission and vehicle registration before driving to school.

Parking - Upon arrival, students must promptly park their vehicles. Please refrain from loitering in vehicles or the parking lot.

Leaving Campus

For the safety and organization of school dismissal, we have a few guidelines in place:

Permission - Leaving campus during school hours in a personal vehicle requires permission from the school office.

Timing - Students cannot leave in personal vehicles until all buses have departed. This ensures a smooth and orderly dismissal process.

Passenger Consent - Parental consent is necessary if students plan to drive other students home.


Our transportation policies are designed to create a secure and efficient student experience. Adhering to these guidelines ensures a respectful and safe environment during transportation to and from school.  

We appreciate your cooperation in making our school transportation system a success!
