2012-2013 Epping Middle and High School Routes
SST TRANSPORTATION The District provides transportation to/from the Seacoast School of Technology from/to Epping High School when SST is in session. However, there may be days when SST is in session, but Epping schools are not. On those days transportation will only be provided from/to Epping High School to/from SST; there will be no transportation from Epping High School to home.
NO PASSING BUSES Vehicles are not permitted to pass school buses loading or unloading students. Air quality standards require buses not to idle while awaiting students or when loading/unloading students. As a result the lights/stop bar are not functional. Please do not pass buses loading/unloading students. The District will be placing cones where necessary to prevent traffic during the loading/unloading of students.
NO WALKING BETWEEN BUSES Please do not walk between buses. This ruling has been put into effect to insure the safety of students and adults. Please note students will be disciplined for walking between buses.
REGULAR TRANSPORTATION First Student provides student transportation services for the Epping School District. Transportation is provided to students in kindergarten through grade 12 and subject to the rules and regulations of the school district.
School district policy on student transportation may be accessed under School Board Policy E. Please be sure to also read the rules and regulations published in the School Student Handbook.
