Students are expected to arrange for their own transportation, unless provided for by the school via a bus or YES Prep rented vehicle.
Students are encouraged to make good use of the opportunity and take full advantage of the free transportation provided by YES Prep Public Schools. Free transportation at YES Prep is a privilege and not a right. It is important for all bus riders to accept and acknowledge that this privilege will only be continued if their behavior on the school bus is reasonable and safe. Students who choose to engage in unacceptable behaviors on a school bus create a risk for themselves as well as other students, the bus driver, the motoring public, and pedestrians. The bus routes can be accessed here.
Students should be aware that all the rules contained in the Student Handbook are applicable to their conduct while riding school-provided transportation. When the term “on school property” is used in the Code of Conduct it includes school transportation. Any violation of the expectations may result in disciplinary action as well as loss of the privilege of being able to use the school bus.
Carpool and Driving to School
Any legal guardian dropping or picking up a student must adhere to all YES Prep Brays Oaks traffic guidelines.
Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in the police being called for assistance. Any traffic violations are subject to police investigation. The individual responsible for any damage caused to school property or other vehicles on campus property will be responsible for their actions.
Any student driving to school must adhere to all campus traffic guidelines and be cleared by campus administration to be able to park on campus. To be cleared, the student must have written permission (in the form of a pass, permit, or letter) by the Front Office to park on campus. To obtain clearance to park on campus the student must bring the following: valid Texas driver’s license, valid vehicle registration, and proof of valid vehicle insurance accepted in Texas.
Campuses are limited in the amount of space available to allow student drivers to park in campus parking lots. Students who provide required documentation to park on campus will only be granted a parking spot and/or permit if space is available and if they meet all other requirements as outlined by the campus. Unauthorized vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense.
Students that do not adhere to campus driving policies will be subject to disciplinary actions such as but not limited to losing their driving privileges.
