Are there items that are NOT ALLOWED on school buses?

Yes . . . To keep students safe and to follow state law, the following items are not allowed on a school bus:
 
  • Oversized objects, such as athletic equipment and large musical instruments that cannot fit safely on a student's lap or between their legs in a seat. Large objects restrict a student's ability to board the bus without harming themselves and others or damaging the bus. State law (WAC 392-145-021) requires objects to sit lower than the window ledge, which is approximately 29 inches high in a school bus.
  • Glass objects such as bottles or jars.
  • Open containers of food and drink or gum.
