Transportation

From winding country roads to busy city streets, school bus drivers carry the most precious cargo: our children.

Our Transportation Professionals:

  • Are the safest and most qualified in the State.

  • Care about the kids and the community. They know that parents want the peace of mind that comes from trusting the person behind the wheel of the big yellow bus.

  • Volunteer for more training than any other drivers in the State & they are all required to pass an extensive background check before they receive their license to drive a school bus.

  • Get our students to and from school safely and on schedule. They are an integral part of our schools and communities.

Resources & Forms:

  • Bus Passes are issued at the District Office during business hours. The District office will assign you a stop/route based off of your address. Please submit your information via the Google Form along with your payment after you have read the Bus Pass FAQ/Rules & Procedures to the District Office. The District Office will contact you when your pass is ready to be picked up. Students must have a pass to ride.
