Background Checks, Bicycles & Buses


At Sierra Vista we welcome volunteers as partners in education. In order to keep children safe, APS requires that all volunteers have an APS approved background check. We will not make exceptions to this policy and will enforce it for all volunteers.

Background checks are done through APS for a fee of $12.00. Forms can be obtained from your schools front desk. It will take approximately 4-6 weeks to get it back. Please contact APS central office for more information at 855-9040. For more details as to who is required to have a background check please see the Volunteer/Visitor policy under letter “V”.


Bikes may be ridden to school provided the student has a lock. The bike must be walked on campus and must remain locked throughout the school day. The school cannot be responsible for damage or theft to student bicycles. It is a state law that children wear helmets and practice safe riding habits when riding bikes to school.


Bus service is provided for students who live within the Sierra Vista boundaries but live one mile or more away from school grounds. We highly encourage students to ride the bus to school, as it helps tremendously with keeping students from being tardy to school. Bus stop and routing information is available at registration or by calling the transportation office at 880-3989.

Complaints about bus service should be addressed with the bus company or the transportation office at 880-3989.

Children should follow the school rules while waiting for the bus, boarding the bus and while being transported by the bus. Please remember that bus riding is a privilege that may be revoked if rules are violated. APS Transportation forbids children from riding buses other than those for which they are registered.
