Once issued, students must carry and show their Student Photo ID card to the bus driver, in order to be admitted onto the bus. Until the passes have been issued, drivers will have a list of students who qualify to ride the bus, and will be asking students to provide their name upon boarding.
Transportation Assistance for Students with Special Needs:
In circumstances where special needs students live outside of the walk limits and in the opinion of the Director of Instruction, are unable to ride the school bus, a transportation assistance allowance may be paid to the parents.
Parents of special needs students requesting transportation assistance for their child must make an annual application to the Director of Instruction – Learning Services, by September 30th each year.
