Need Bus Transportation?

ALL transportation requests must be made via Online Registration. Registration must be complete by Monday, August 9 to be eligible to ride the bus on the first day of school.

Parents must provide transportation until such time as the student is assigned to a bus route.

Bus Request Denial Appeal
If you received a denial for bus services & would like to restate your case for an exception, please e-mail John Bagert, Director of Transportation, stating the specific reasons why you feel an exception should be granted. Those approved for an exception will not be provided transportation until after the first week of school.

***Please do not call the Transportation Department as we are experiencing heavy call volumes & will not be able to consider exceptions via the telephone.
