Transportation Requests

Attention Parents!

Please be reminded that ALL requests for alternate bus stops, exceptions or special arrangements MUST be renewed EACH year with the Pupil Transportation Department.

Please complete and submit to the Pupil Transportation Department an Alternate Bus Stop Request Form if you require transportation to and/or from a location other than that which would be assigned based on your home address.

All information from the previous school year has been deleted from our database.  Special arrangements from last year will not be honored this year without the appropriate form being completed and sent to the Transportation Department at least two weeks prior to the start of school.

 

Transportation Department Responsibilities

The Transportation Department has numerous responsibilities. The department's main responsibility is safely transporting students to and from school. Other responsibilities include notifying the news media regarding school closings, scheduling field trips throughout the District, transporting students involved in athletic events, maintaining our bus fleet, training individuals and new bus drivers for the District.  Kindergarten Round-up program for new kindergarten students who will be starting school in the fall.

In order to be as efficient as possible, it is important for us to know who will require pupil transportation services. If we assume every eligible student will ride the bus we will have many more bus routes than are necessary. Therefore, we ask that you help us as we plan out routes for the coming school year by letting us know whether or not you will require transportation services. To do this please complete and return a Transportation Request Form, this and other forms can be obtained by clicking the link above.
