  • MUHSD Transportation Department Bus Rules

    5 CCR 14103 Authority of Driver. Pupils transported in a school bus shall be under the authority of, and responsible directly to, the driver of the bus, and the driver shall be held responsible for the orderly conduct of the pupils while they are on the bus or being escorted across a street, highway. Continued disorderly conduct or persistent refusal to submit to the authority of the driver shall be sufficient reason for a pupil to be denied transportation.

    The Merced Union High School District (MUHSD) has adopted rules and regulations to assist students and chaperones in understanding their responsibilities while riding the bus and while waiting at the bus stops. The following Board Policy BP5131.1 AR constitutes violations of the established rules and regulations.

    Plan A

    One hour delay, foggy day school bus schedule. The majority of spotters indicate visibility due to fog is reduced below 200 feet, by 5:45 AM.

    Plan B

    A second hour delay is now in effect. At 6:15 AM spotters are sent out to the following areas: McSwain, El Nido, Highway 140 toward Gustine, North Merced- Hopeton/Snelling, Cressy/Ballico. Conditions have not cleared so that visibility exceeds 200 feet.

    Plan C

    A third hour delay is now in effect. At 7:15 AM spotters indicate that visibility in the areas above still has not cleared so that visibility exceeds 200 feet.

    It is not expected that the District will go beyond Plan C and cancel morning bus service entirely as visibility due to fog almost always improves beyond 200 feet by 8:45 AM.
