Bus Safety

Student behavior that distracts bus drivers is a hazard to the vehicle's safe operation, and jeopardizes the safety and welfare of all passengers. Misbehavior while on a yellow school bus or a Metro bus can result in disciplinary action for the student or the suspension of transportation service for the student. Read more about our requirements for student behavior on buses.

Transportation Office (513) 363-0330
First Student Bus Service (513) 761-6100

Yellow bus service is contracted through the pupil transportation office. Roselawn Condon School's bus vendor is First Student. Transportation of students is a privilege that must not be abused. Each child must observe the following regulations while riding on the bus:

  • Be orderly during loading and unloading of bus.
  • Ride regularly assigned bus.
  • Identify yourself when asked to do so.
  • Do not use abusive language.
  • Be quiet at railroad crossings or other dangerous areas.
  • Stay away from the emergency door exit at all times.
  • Remain seated while bus is in motion.
  • Do not smoke on the bus.
  • Do not fight on the bus.
  • No eating or littering is permitted on the bus.

Students Missing Bus at Dismissal

If a child misses the bus at dismissal time, the child will be brought to the office where parents/guardians will be contacted to arrange the child's transportation home for that day.

After School Detention for Students Who Ride Buses

When a child who rides a school bus is given an after school detention, parent/guardians will be notified at least one day in advance of the detention. Parents/Guardians are responsible for child's transportation.

Parental Request for Change of Transportation

If a parent/guardian wishes any deviation in transportation (i.e., walk home, or pick up by car) the office must be notified in writing. These arrangements are to be made prior to your child coming to school. The office cannot guarantee messages that are left with secretaries and/or voicemail will be given to students.

Students who ride a bus will not be permitted to wait for a ride, walk home, or ride home in a car with another parent without written permission from a parent or legal guardian. Please do not telephone the school office to leave a message for a transportation change. We will not jeopardize the safety of your child by taking a message for a transportation change over the telephone. For the safety of each of our children, no exceptions will be made for this regulation.

Cell Phone Policy

Cell Phone

Cell phones are not to be used during school hours. If a cell phone is seen or heard, the phone will be taken, and will only be returned to a parent/guardian. If the phone is taken a third time, the phone will remain at the school until the end of the year. Roselawn Condon School is not responsible for lost or stolen cell phones.

Student Messages

Due to the high volume of phone calls and office demands, no phone messages will be taken and/or given to students unless it is deemed an emergency. Please make daily arrangements for your child(ren)'s after school plans prior to arrival at school.

Student Use of School Telephones

Students may not use a school telephone during the school day under normal circumstances. If a student explains an emergency situation to a staff member, the student will be allowed to use the telephone only with a staff  member present during the conversation. Cell phone use is not permitted during the school day.


Review CPS' Code of Conduct for disciplinary procedures.

Dress Code

Students who attend Roselawn Condon are required to dress in their school uniform every day. Learn more about our school uniform policy.

Snow Days and School Delays

Snow days and school delays are announced on our website, local TV and radio stations, CPS' mobile app, and through automated phone calls. Assume school is open unless you hear otherwise. Learn more about CPS' severe weather and emergency closing procedures.

Valuable Possessions

Students are encouraged to be responsible for their own belongings. Please label all clothing and other items so that they can be returned to their owner if lost. Lost items are placed in a designated area in the cafeteria for one week. After one week, items will be removed and disposed of by donating them to charity.

Toys, candy and gum, games, computer games and iPods are not to be brought to school. If a student brings any of these items to school, the item(s) will be taken from the student and kept in the principal's office until a parent/guardian comes to claim it/them.

Students are required to give cell phones to teachers so that they may be locked up for safekeeping. Cell phones are not to be turned on during school hours. If a school adult finds a student cell phone that is turned on, the cell phone will be given to the school principal and/or school security. Only a parent/guardian may retrieve the phone from the school principal and/or school security.

Students may not bring extra money to school. If students lose personal times while they are at school, they may check in the office to see if anything has been turned in as a lost item.

Visiting During School Hours

We welcome visits from parents and guardians. However, to protect student safety, all visitors must sign in at the main office and wear a visitor's badge. Parents/guardians who would like a conference with their child's teacher must schedule an appointment with the teacher.
