Pinwheels for Peace



Edmunds Middle School students honored International Day of Peace on Friday, September 20th by participating in the Pinwheels for Peace Campaign. Every student created a pinwheel during their Thoughtful Thursday homeroom time and displayed them in a form of a peace sign on the EMS lawn. Students also reflected on ways they could increase peace in their community, school, and homes.

CCTA Behavior Expectations for Riders

In recent weeks, there have been a couple of behavior incidents on our neighborhood special buses. We have immediately addressed these incidents, both through appropriate consequences and better staffing of the buses. We are continuing to work with BSD Directors and CCTA staff regarding bus safety. Our goal is to ensure that all students travel safely to and from school.

This year BSD and CCTA are piloting a new ridership plan. The pilot plan allows all BSD students to ride the neighborhood specials and all CCTA buses between the hours of 7am and 7pm, with their BSD student ID card. This has led to increased ridership of our neighborhood specials. While we sort out the details of this change, please review the following safety information with your student(s).

To ensure the safe travel of all students, we are sharing the safety practices used by CCTA drivers when transporting passengers. 

Be Safe: Remain seated, facing forward and listen to the bus driver and bus monitor. Please board in an orderly single file manner. Throwing objects from the bus or sticking anything including body limbs out of the bus window is not allowed.

Be Respectful: Keep hands, feet, and objects to self and follow directions. Thank the driver when exiting. Do not shout or talk in a loud disturbing manner.

Be Responsible: Keep belongings in your backpack and keep your backpack on your lap or under the seat.

Please refer to the letter that was sent home at the start of school for more details about CCTA rider expectations.
