For all riders the morning pickup location may differ from afternoon drop-off location. However, the stops must be consistent each day of the week.  Transportation to and from other locations is the family’s responsibility.  For students in a dual-custody arrangement transportation will be provided to either “home” location on different days of the week.

Please note that we require a minimum of five (5) business days for processing any requests. 

Please turn in all bus forms to the secretary at your child's school or the District Office.


  • We will process requests in the order they are received
  • New to district families will be expedited
  • Families will receive email conformation once busing is setup
  • New busing will begin on the Monday of each week until we are caught up
