Rules for Passengers

Click here for the Thomaston Board of Education policy that describes the Rules for Passengers.

Out-of-District Bus Hub Rules

The Thomaston Public Schools Bus Hub is located in the rear parking area of Thomaston High School.  The district has built a bus shelter for our out-of-district students which is located near the gray storage containers in the rear parking area of Thomaston High School.

Morning Bus Procedure:

All out-of-district students must be dropped off at the bus shelter in the rear parking area of Thomaston High School at least five (5) minutes before their scheduled bus pick up time.

Parents, guardians and carpool drivers are asked to pull up near the bus shelter to drop off students for bus pickup; do not follow behind the bus or block the bus pickup lane.

Parents, guardians and carpool drivers who wish to wait until students are picked up must park in the spaces numbered 60-80.  Students of waiting drivers are expected to wait in the bus shelter; students will not approach a bus from a parked vehicle.

For the safety of our out-of-district students, parents, guardians and carpool drivers must maintain a 25-foot safety zone around school buses.  Using the shelter and parking in designated spaces will enable parents, guardians and carpool drivers to maintain this safety zone with limited effort and concern.

Afternoon Bus Procedure:

All out-of-district students must be picked up at the bus shelter in the rear parking area.  Parents, guardians and carpool drivers will not pull up near the bus shelter to pick up students in the afternoon.  Students must not approach a moving vehicle or a vehicle not parked in the designated parking area.

All parents, guardians and carpool drivers must park their vehicles in one of the spaces numbered 60-80 approximately five (5) minutes prior to the bus drop-off time; do not follow behind the bus or block the bus drop-off lane.

Students of waiting drivers are expected to walk, not run, to their parent’s, guardian’s or carpool driver’s vehicles with the exception of Rotella and Maloney students[1] who are expected to meet their parents, guardians, or carpool drivers at the bus shelter. 

For the safety of our out-of-district students, parents, guardians and carpool drivers must maintain a 25-foot safety zone around school buses.  Using the shelter and parking in designated spaces will enable parents, guardians and carpool drivers to maintain this safety zone with limited effort and concern.

Afternoon Options for Out-of-District Students:

In the afternoon, students may be picked up at the bus hub or they may choose to transfer to a bus that will transport them to a bus stop near their home.

The table below provides information specific to the 2016-2017 school year regarding access to other bus stops for out-of-district students:

Access to Play & Learn and Ledgewood daycare centers is provided to Rotella and Maloney students who are registered at those centers.  The table below provides information specific to the 2016-2017 school year regarding access to Play & Learn and Ledgewood daycare centers for Rotella and Maloney students:

These rules are in effect during all bus schedules, i.e., regular day, delayed opening, and early dismissal schedules.  The traffic flow at the bus hub may differ depending on the schedule that is in place for Thomaston Public Schools or the schedule for an out-of-district school.  Please do not veer from the rules listed above.

Important: 

·       Parents, guardians and carpool drivers are responsible for the safety of the out-of-district students who use the bus hub.

·       If someone other than yourself will be driving your child to/from the bus hub, please inform that person of the rules described above.


[1] Due to the age of the students attending Rotella and Maloney, it is necessary that the bus driver make eye contact with each student’s parent, guardian or carpool driver when dropping off students.

Out-of-District Bus Cancellation/Delay Information

Parents of out-of-district students must drop-off/pick-up at the Thomaston High School hub shelter in accordance with the Thomaston Public Schools Bus Hub Rules.  At times, the regular bus hub schedule will be affected by unplanned schedule changes like those caused by weather or other emergencies, i.e., school cancellations, delayed openings and early dismissals. 

The following table describes each scenario related to school cancellations, delays and early dismissals:
