Eligibility for Transportation
All students in kindergarten through fifth grade are eligible for transportation. Students in grades six through eight are eligible if they live more than 1.5 miles from their school. Those in grades nine through twelve must live more than 1.8 miles from school to receive transportation.
All students may at one time or another ride a school bus either for their regular transportation to and from school, or for a field trip, athletic trip, or academic shuttle. Therefore, all students must learn about the practice of safety procedures.
Transportation information will be mailed home shortly before the beginning of the school year. The information will list your child's morning and afternoon bus numbers, pick up time and bus stop. Please note that the time will probably change after the first few days of school and the BUS DRIVER will let the students know (verbally) of any changes.
Any changes (address or school) should be reported to the transportation department as soon as possible to insure continued service for your child. If you wait until the first week of school, which is a very busy time for our department, or the day before you need transportation, you may experience a delay due to the fact that notification to the bus drivers and/or routing changes must be completed before your child can ride.
Only students who reside in our district are eligible for transportation by distance, may rid the school bus.
It is very important that you keep the school informed of any change in phone number and provide an alternate contact should you not be available in case of emergency.
District policy provides for corner stops. Hose stops are not allowed unless they have been determined necessary by the district for medical reasons.
If your child is the only one at the stop and has not taken the bus for two weeks or more, we will discontinue service until you call to resume.
