IMPORTANT PROCEDURAL CHANGE


To allow the transportation department to safely transport your children we are making the following changes beginning September 2018.

With the exception of day care arrangements, students will not be allowed to ride any bus home that they are not assigned to ride unless it is an extreme emergency.   Therefore, students may not ride a different bus home with a friend. Students who need to go home with a friend from a different bus may be picked up in the car line once the school office is notified. 

Note: 
Parents who have an emergency should call the transportation department to obtain permission for their child to ride an unauthorized bus.

We understand that many parents use after school day care to accommodate their work schedules. The transportation department will transport students to certified day care locations within the district. The maximum number of options that the district will transport students to is two different day care locations within the district and to their home.

A form will be available on the transportation website to register for day care transportation. The form must be filled out prior to the start of the school year. The deadline to complete this form is August 15th. This deadline will give the transportation department adequate time to adjust the bus routes to be ready for the start of the school year.

A parent may request that their child go to an existing stop on another bus for a daily day care situation. This request will be granted as long as there is room on that bus.  A stop will not be added to any route for day care issues.   

We appreciate your understanding as we strive to create the safest environment for all of our students while balancing the needs of the parents.
