Check the GVWR for each axle and get weighed. That's the way to be most certain.
I _really_ doubt the weight would be a problem.How many of the original seats fit in the space you're using for the bikes? Take an average kid weighing idk, 80lbs? Times two kids per seat, in that space. Looking at my bike ('17 Kawasaki Concours 14), if I had two in the cabin there's no way its taking up less than 6 seats of space, so that's 12 kids * 80lb = 960lb. You're already within ~150lb of what you're worried about. Not to mention the weight of the seats themselves you removed, backpacks/gear etc, and the fact that school buses are way overbuilt...
And you have dually in the back...
