Unless exceptional absence, adult supervisors are present on the afternoon (15h30) and Wednesday (13h00) buses.
Where possible, adult supervisors or pupil supervisors among the oldest are present on the morning buses. All supervisors are required to ensure that the pupils comply with the safety rules.
The Transport Office cannot be held liable for any loss, damage, or injury caused by pupils using the school bus service. The cost of any damage caused by children will be billed to their parents.
We remind you that in case of accident, children are only covered by the school insurance if they make the journey from school to their home, child care service (garderie) or second official residence. If your child travels to another destination, parents must ensure that they are adequately covered by a private insurance for their trip.
The school nurses are normally only available during school hours from 8h20 to 16h20.
If your child, registered for an APEEE service, falls ill or is the victim of an accident during the course of this service, the school nurse will be called on, in case she’s present and available.
In the event that the illness and / or the accident occurs outside the hours of presence of the school nurses or in the case where the latter are absent or not reachable, the services of the APEEE will call an ambulance to take your child to the hospital.
For all the services of the APEEE provided outside the school (example: swimming pool, climbing …), our supervisors, instructors, bus drivers or other stakeholders will immediately call the emergency services.
Despite the fact that a part of the APEEE staff follows a training “First Aid” each year, our staff can not take the responsibility of making a diagnosis concerning the severity of the accident or illness.
Therefore, public medical emergency services will be called immediately to avoid any risk.
After the school nurse or emergency service have been contacted, parents will immediately be informed so that they can join their child in the school infirmary or hospital.
In case the cost of the ambulance fee is not covered by the school insurance, the payment of the bill will be borne by the parents.
The Transport office reserves the right to exclude any child who misbehaves, bullies another child or commits an act of vandalism. The decision to exclude a child will be taken by the Transport office. Parents will be informed in writing.
The Transport Office asks the pupils in its buses to cooperate and respect the environment they are in. We thank in advance all pupils to follow the rules listed below for a safe journey (to & from) school.
