Video Surveillance on School Transportation Vehicles

In order to provide for the personal safety and security of students and personal property belonging to the Division, the Division supports the use of video surveillance practices on student transportation vehicles believing that such practices shall through deterrence, encourage good behavior and promote safe practices.

Student misbehavior increases the potential risk of injury or damage to property. As the behavior of students is a significant factor in the safety and efficiency of school transportation systems, the Division supports the use and implementation of video monitoring practices on student transportation vehicles as needed, in accordance with the procedures established herein.

It is important for parents to be aware that their child may at some point during the school year ride a school bus that is equipped with Video Surveillance Cameras. If you wish to know more specifics regarding this policy please follow the link to AP 182

Bus Status

Wolf Creek Public Schools desires to keep parents, students, teachers and school administrators informed of changes to the status of busing on any given school day. Notification will be provided on the Bus Status webpage when there are changes to the regular operating times of any of the Wolf Creek buses that transport our students. Please check the Bus Status webpage for bus cancellations or delays.

Wolf Creek Public Schools will continue to announce any district-wide busing cancellations due to inclement weather, fog, or poor road conditions using Wolf Creek Public Schools' communication practice.
