FAQs

What if I need to change my child’s transportation information?

August 5 at 5:00 pm is the cut-off for changes.  All changes received after that date and time will be effective on Monday, August 19. Bus stop changes typically will take 48 hours.

What if my child needs two different PM buses?

Parents must submit a written schedule to the school office so staff know which bus the student is to board each day.

If my child is driving themselves, can they still be issued a bus route?

Student drivers will not be issued a bus route if they are driving 100% of the time. If the plans change, please contact the school office and transportation services will be reinstated within 48 hours.

Can my child get off at another bus stop?

Students must get on and off at their assigned bus stop only.  Drivers are not permitted to provide “sweetheart” stops. Parents must contact the Transportation Department to request a different stop location. See Alternate Transportation information above.

Can a student who is not assigned to District transportation ride the bus home with a friend?

Students are not permitted to ride the bus home with a friend.  In an emergency, parents should contact the school office.  Please review your school’s procedures to determine the time deadline for daily changes.
