Bus Stop Changes

  • Requests for bus stop changes must be submitted in writing to the Transportation Office.


Bus Passes

  • Each child eligible for bus transportation will be issued a bus pass and must present it to the driver upon boarding. If a pass is lost, a duplicate may be issued through the school's general office for a charge of $2.50. If a pass becomes worn or mutilated through normal use, it will be replaced free of charge upon presentation of the old pass. Inappropriate behavior while on a school bus or improper use of the bus pass may result in the loss of bus pass privileges. More information will be provided when the bus pass is issued.
