A note about winter weather. When roads are snow packed and slippery, our drivers main concern is getting your student(s) to school safely. As a result, some routes may get behind in their pick up times. However, we will never NOT pick up your student unless a bus cannot be driven down a particular road. In those cases, we will contact you as soon as possible and try to make other arrangements to pick up your student(s). Students using our transportation are NEVER counted late if they arrive at school late.
Students living five miles or more from their designated school will not be charged a fee as per state law. Students requesting transportation within 5 miles of their designated school will be required to purchase a bus pass.
Bus passes are $75.00 per student, per semester. The semester maximum fee is $175.00 per family.
Open enrolled students who have a pickup and dropoff point out of their assigned attendance boundary, as per Board policy, will be charged $150.00 per semester, which does NOT apply to the family maximum. Open enrolled students who have a pickup and a drop off point out of their assigned attendance boundary as per Board policy will be charged $150 per semester, which does not apply to the family maximum. An open enrolled student who uses a pickup and drop off point within the boundary of the school of attendance will purchase a regular bus pass ($75.00 per semester) and will not be subject to the increased rate.
