Who is eligible for transportation?
The district provides home-to-school of residence transportation to pupils in grades K–6 living beyond the established transportation boundary line. Students who meet the boundary requirement are eligible to apply for transportation. Transportation boundary line distances are as follows:
- K–3 1 mile
- 4–6 1 1/2 miles
Students who need to get off their regular bus, at a designated bus stop other than their own, must have a permission slip from home, signed by the principal/designee. Every effort will be made by the drivers to have each student get off at his/her designated bus stop. A student who accidentally or willingly gets on the wrong bus will be returned to school where their parents will be called to arrange pickup of their student. If your student becomes sick during the day, he/she will be kept in the nurse's office until contact is made with the parents. In the best interest of everyone, infectious or severely ill students, e.g. (measles, vomiting, head lice, etc.), cannot be allowed to ride the bus home.
