We are currently in the process of working on routes for the upcoming school year. Starting in the 18-19 school year, public elementary schools will be starting 20 minutes earlier and the buses need to arrive 30 to 15 minutes before the start of school. Please refer to the parent information tab on the left for finding busing information for your student. Just a reminder, students need to be out waiting at their bus stop at least 5 mintues before their scheduled pick up time. If you ever have any questions, please contact the transportation office.
The Transportation Department's main mission is to provide Safe and Efficient service. We travel roughly the distance from Miami, Florida to San Francisco, CA and back daily. Our District covers 400 square miles and our goal is to provide the safest route to and from school.
Per school board policy, students living further than two (2) miles from school will be provided transportation to and from school. Kindergartners that live further than one (1) mile from school will be provided transportation. If your child is not eligible for transportation, you may fill out the Open Seat Rider Request form. This form allows parents to sign up for transportation of those students that live within the 2 mile walk zone of each school. This is based upon open seats available on the bus and the students will be routed to the closest stop on the route.
Also, Please review bus loading and unloading safety with your child. Please remind your children the dangers of the bus stop. As a bus approaches a stop, remind children to stand back until the bus comes to complete stop and the driver has opened the student entrance door. Children should NEVER retrieve a back pack that they may have dropped without notifying the driver FIRST. If your child has to cross the street, they need to wait until the bus driver waives them across.
