    New Bus APP

    The district has launched a new application provided by TripSpark called "Where i​​s​ The Bus".  The purpose of this program is to provide parent/guardians with current GPS tracking of the bus their student is assigned too.  Families will know precisely when the bus will arrive at the assigned bus stop from the convenience of their phone, tablet, laptop, home, etc.  

    ​​​To utilize this program, parents/guardians must complete the process below.  Information is also posted on our transportation web page and attached.

    • Create an account online following the instruction provided on our transportation web page.
    • The student ID (alpha code) and birthday must match the information on file at the school.

    Bus Information

    Bus transportation is provided for students, however, riding the bus is a privilege that may be revoked at any time for disruptive or unsatisfactory conduct.  Since safety is our primary concern, all students who are transported by bus are under the authority of the bus driver and the school.  Students who are transported to and from school are expected to abide by the “Code of Student Conduct,” School Board Policy 208, the rules of the Transportation Department, and all school rules.

    Emergency Bus Board Passes—If there is an emergency in your family and you wish your child to use a different bus stop then he/she is assigned—please do the following:

    1. Send your child to the 7th grade house with a note explaining the emergency and the dates you need the pass.

    2. The child will be given a boarding pass to complete. The child is responsible for the knowing the route number and the bus stop he/she needs.

    3. The child returns the completed boarding pass to the 7th grade house to get it signed.

      Remember that the district is only obligated to provide bus service to and from your home address.
