Bus Notes

We will NOT be accepting bus notes to ride other vehicles to/from school. Students may only ride buses assigned by the transportation office.

Students are assigned yearly to the bus stop closest to their home. If your child needs alternative bus stops (example daycare facility) please contact the transportation office via phone or email to make these arrangements. The transportation office will let you know if your request is approved and assign your child to the appropriate bus.

BUS STOP INFORMATION

Personalized information can be found by logging into the parent portal. There you will find bus stop locations, bus numbers and estimated times. Please contact the transportation office if you believe there is an error in your child's assigned bus stop.

Please remember buses always run late the first few weeks of school.

School Bus Danger Zone

The “Danger Zone” is the area on all sides of the bus where children are in the most danger of not being seen by the driver (ten feet in front of the bus where the driver may be too high to see a child, ten feet on either side of the bus where a child may be in the driver's blind spot, and the area behind the school bus).
