  • Per Board Policy 711.1 

    K-3 students living less than two miles from the designated school may be transported on a school bus by meeting it at an established town stop location.  

    4-8 students living less than two miles and 9-12 students living less than three miles from the designated school may be transported on a school bus by meeting it at an established town stop if in the judgment of the physical operations staff, student disabilty status, or traffic conditions merit such transportation.  

    All students must have a bus ID card in order to board the bus.  This card can be kept in a billford, purse, or clipped onto a bag or back pack. 

    Any high school student riding the bus home on a country route in the afternoon will need to have a bus ID card in order to get on a bus at the high school.  ID cards will be handed out in August at "meet the teacher" night. 

    All 4th - 12th grade students needing a ride from in-town to their attendance center, may board a bus at the elementary building from 7:35-7:45.  These buses will drop you off at your building.

    In the afternoon, students in 4th - 8th grade may board any bus at their building to be transported to the elementary building.  Here you will either walk home or board your bus to the country.  For lack of room,  no high school student living in town will be allowed to ride a pm shuttle.

    Additional transportation information is included in Board Policy (700 series) as well as Parent/Student Handbooks found on our website.
