In the event that a student experiences a health condition whilst travelling on a school bus the driver will call emergency services as appropriate. But in a situation such as a natural disaster there may be a delay in getting medical attention to the bus.
Some parents may wish the school bus driver to have specific information related to their child. This information can be submitted using the form below. Upon receipt of this information, the following steps will occur:
- School Admin reviews the information submitted, seeking clarification from the parent as required
- Once the information is confirmed, School Admin discusses the information with a manager at Uzabus to confirm that the steps to be taken in the event of emergency are reasonable.
- The student’s information and parent contact details are placed into a sealed envelope and stored with the driver’s handbook. A copy of the information is also held securely at School Admin and the Uzabus office as a backup in case of emergency.
Parents should note that there is no requirement to supply health information to a bus driver. This decision is to be made solely by the parent, taking into account the needs of their child.
