**** All students bus assignments have been re-assigned to their home stop for the 19/20 school year.****

- please complete a babysitter/split Custody transportation request form ASAP




- Your students bus will be re-assigned to the home address if no form received.


In an effort to be more efficient with our bus load counts, please notify us ASAP if your student(s) will not ride the school busThis will enable us to remove them from the bus roster.      *****This must be consistent for the entire school year.***** Thank you!




Thank you for all of your patience as we continue to work thru the changes that need to happen on our bus runs.  Please remind your student to be out at the stop at least 5 minutes prior to stop time. We are changing routes daily, so we ask for your continued patience as we resolve the concerns.  E-mail us if you are looking for a stop change.  Please be aware that it may take up to two (2) weeks to make that change happen.





2019/2020 school year forms are requested to be sent to Transportation by 6/14/19 to enable us ample time to process this request.


***Any changes coming in after the start of school may take up to two weeks - Please be patient with us during this time***       THANK YOU!


If your student(s) need to ride an alternate bus or get off at an alternate stop other than their assigned stop, prior arrangements need to be made with the district transportation office if the change will be in the morning.  If in the afternoon, a note needs to be taken to the school office for them to issue the student a bus pass - no student will be allowed to board a different bus with anything other than the school bus pass.


****Please remind your student(s) there are bus rules and one of them are that there is NO food nor drink permitted on the school bus.  There is the potential for another student to have an allergic reaction to that item.****
