Transportation Frequently Asked Questions


Can my kid ride the bus home with a friend?
Students are required to ride their regular bus, but we understand that emergency situations arise.  If an alternate bus route is required in an emergency, please contact your school or the Transportation Department for assistance.

Why can’t you come down my road with the bus?
Buses require certain road specifications to be able to navigate the road in a safe manner.  Some roads may not have enough students to warrant a stop other than at the end of the road, which allows all students to get to their school safely and on time.

Why can’t you pick my kid up at our house? / Why can’t you just add a stop?
While picking up each student at their home would be an ideal situation for everyone, it is not feasible given the number of students in our district.  The Transportation Department works diligently to assign the best possible stop locations while providing for the safety of students and drivers while maximizing resources.

Will you shuttle my kids to me?
Given the number of students in our district, shuttles are an important aspect of our transportation system.  Shuttles between schools are created when they are feasible based on the number of students requiring transport.  Unfortunately, we cannot establish shuttles to drop off at private businesses.

Will you let my kid get off at a different stop?
To ensure the safety of students, they will only be let off at their assigned stop.  If the transportation needs of your child change, please contact the Transportation Department.

Can students lose bus privileges?
Students are expected to maintain appropriate behavior while on the school bus.  Riding the bus is a privilege, not a right.  A student can have their riding privileges suspended or revoked if it is determined that a student is a distraction to the driver, a danger to others, or exhibits behavior deemed inappropriate for the audience (including language and gestures).
