The Transportation Department uses a bus pass system to assist in accounting for the whereabouts of students on buses. It also informs the drivers of a new student on their bus that may require a different stop other than the normal route.
A parent/guardian must request a bus pass through the appropriate school office in writing, in person, or by phone.
The request must include the following specific information:
- Student’s name
- Effective date(s) for the bus pass. “As required or as needed” is not an acceptable effective date.
- Full street address where the student is going.
- Contact phone number of either the parent/guardian or the responsible person where the student is going.
When a student registers with the school, the school office will assign the student to the proper bus route. The school office will also provide
approximate pick-up/drop-off times as well as location. If not, you can contact the Transportation Center at 334-7986 and we will provide this information.
Kindergarten and new students unfamiliar with bus riding are a serious concern for drivers. A parent or guardian must accompany young students to their bus stop for both morning pickup and afternoon drop-off. Drivers are instructed to return students to the Transportation Center if they consider an unattended drop unsafe.
