Student behavior that distracts bus drivers is a hazard to the vehicle's safe operation, and jeopardizes the safety and welfare of all passengers. Misbehavior while on a yellow school bus or a Metro bus can result in disciplinary action for the student or the suspension of transportation service for the student. Read more about our requirements for student behavior on buses.
Review CPS' Code of Conduct for disciplinary procedures.
Students who attend Bond Hill Academy are required to dress in their school uniform every day. The Pre-K-6 Uniform Dress Code begins the first day of school.

Students are not permitted to wear oversized t-shirts or oversized pants, and both pant legs must be pulled down at all times. No drooping pants or undergarment exposure is permitted; all students must wear their pants around their waist with a belt. Students may not wear clothing with inappropriate words or pictures alluding to drugs or sex. Students are not permitted to write or draw on themselves at school. Children may not wear coats, hats, scarves, do-rags, bandanas, flip flops, house shoes, gang paraphernalia, excessive jewelry (large earrings, a large number of bracelets, etc.), or any item considered disruptive to learning in the school building, hallways, classrooms, etc. during the school day.
