Who Is Eligible For Bus Transportation?

Any bus concerns, contact the following secretaries for assistance:
*Parents who completed the BCPS Phase 2 survey on or before Thursday. October 1st can find their child’s bus route on virtual counselor. Those who completed it after Thursday. October 1st are on a waiting list due to maximum capacity. To check if the student has been assigned a bus or is on a waiting list, call school at 754-322-0650.
PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF
Parents wishing to drive their child to school between 7:10am-7:40am and/or 2:30pm-3:00pm can enter from the North side of Deerfield Beach High School. The gate off Buck Pride Way, near Butler Stadium will open at 7:10am and/or 2:20pm. As a student should never be dropped off in the front of the school or any other areas used by the BCPS bus system.
When entering the loop, do not stop in the red zone to pick-up or drop-off students. This is not a loading and unloading zone. Stopping here is a major cause of the backups that occur in the loop and on Buck Pride Way. Please do not drop off students outside the gates, as loading or unloading in this area may subject you to a $100 fine. Also the front entrance and student parking lot, off of NE 5th Terrace, are not locations to drop-off or pick-up students.
Traveling from the West
• Turn right (east) on Buck Pride Way, stay in right turn lane
• Turn right (south) after Butler Stadium into first set of school gates
• Turn left (east) at Butler Stadium ticket booth
• Drop your child off at the sidewalk
• Proceed back to Buck Pride Way
• Turn right (east) onto Buck Pride Way
Slowly exit the lot, being mindful that other parents are delivering their children, and teachers are arriving at school and parking in that back lot
*No student should arrive at the school before 7:10a.m., as Deerfield Beach High does not offer supervision until 7:10a.m.
Those upperclassman who drive to and from school are required to park in the student parking lot; access gates are off Buck Pride Way or NE 5th Terrace which will open at 7:00am and/or 2:30pm. They must park in the student parking lot and may not park on neighborhood streets.
Students who do not follow this rule will be issued a detention, as student parking is a privilege at Deerfield Beach High School. The cost to park in the student lot is $60. Download the Parking Permit Application and submit the form to Security Specialist Mr. Miller. Students must be at least 16 years of age with a valid drivers license.
Student Dismissal Without a Parent or Guardian
Those who drive to and from school have the ability to be signed out from school with permission from the student’s parent/guardian. Download and complete the Student Authorized Release form and return it to Ms. Malcolm in Student Affairs. The form MUST be notarized prior to being turned in.
*The student parking lot gate will be open at 7:00a.m. and will close promptly at 8:30a.m. Any student who arrives late will need to check-in at the Welcome Center before entering the student parking lot.
Students that ride bicycles to school are requested to lock their bicycles up by portable One along the fence line.
