Transportation » Overview

Overview

Greetings from the Transportation Department. We want to welcome you to the 2024-2025 school year. Transportation is an important part of your child’s educational experience. Our goal is to make sure your child arrives to school and is returned home safely each day. Please check in from time to time for important updates about scheduling, routes and public programs from within our department.

 

Are you planning for your child to ride a school bus for the 2024-2025 school year?  To control bus capacities and keep our students safe, each student must be register, and assigned to a school bus, PRIOR to riding.  You can register your child using the link below or by contacting the Transportation Department.  Unregistered students waiting at a bus stop will be transported to school and turned over to an administrator.  Unregistered students will not be transported home after school.  The parent/guardian will be responsible for transportation after school until the student is registered.

  • Please complete a separate registration for EACH student that will need to ride a bus.

  • Eligible students will be assigned only ONE bus stop, determined by the address in the school system.

  • Students that are NOT riding a bus to school should NOT complete a registration.
