Safe school bus transportation services are the core of what we do. In fact, many of our school bus drivers and transportation staff have been recognized for their commitment to safety in their daily work. Our bus drivers ensure reliable transportation to and from schools, activities and events. Our mechanics keep our buses running smoothly. Our dispatchers maintain routes and schedules to help our students reach their destinations in a timely manner.
Visit our page on School Bus/Zones Safety Tips or parents, students and drivers - and review the important laws related to school zones and school buses. Thank you for helping us ensure the safety of our students every day.
Inclement Weather Procedures
In cases of inclement weather, the District will notify the public through the local media of school closings or and/or any delays, cancelations in school transportation services. Specific weather zones affected would be specified in the announcements. District snow zones can be viewed via the link in the resources section on this page.
Alternate Pick Up and Drop Off Requests
Bus transportation is provided outside the designated walk zone for your school attendance boundary. Please complete the form below only if you are requesting for your student to be picked up and/or dropped off at a location other than their home address on a regular, established schedule. All requests apply to the current school year only.
Limitations to Alternate Transportation: Requests for multiple pick up and drop off locations that are not on a regular schedule cannot be accommodated. Students may not choose where to be picked up or dropped off. Requests for alternate week changes cannot be accommodated. Temporary changes (less than one month) must be in the form of a note to the school on the date of the requested change.
