Transportation

Transportation postcards indicating student bus stops with pick up and drop off times will be mailed the week of August 7. Please watch your mailbox for this important information. 

If you are aware that your student will need a bus stop change, please let us know as soon as possible. Advance notice allows our transportation department to create the best and most efficient routes for our students.

Parents may request a bus stop change for their child by completing a bus stop change request form and returning it to the Transportation Office. Download the form on the transportation website. It can be emailed to [email protected].

All requests must include student's name, home phone number, school, grade, current bus stop, requested bus stop and reason for the request. All requests will be evaluated, and you will be notified of the decision.

Please contact the district’s transportation coordinator Tim Jones at [email protected] with any questions.
