The walk-out distance for all schools is 1.5 miles. Please complete a separate form for each student.
Students eligible for busing are allowed one designated pick up and drop off location only. Students must board and exit the bus at their designated/assigned stop only.
Bus routes and bus stop locations are reviewed each year and may be changed for efficiency. Bus stop locations are established in accordance with state and federal laws and school board policies. Drivers and aides are NOT allowed to make any changes to bus stops or routes. Parents of students with specialized transportation needs will be contacted directly by the Transportation Department.
Students must arrive at the assigned stop at least 5 minutes prior to the bus arrival time AND be ready to board (NOT waiting in a vehicle or doorway of a house).
Parents/guardians must provide supervision for your student/s going to and from the bus stop and while waiting at the bus stop. Parents/guardians must accept responsibility for your student's conduct while at the bus stop and on the bus.
Dress your student/s appropriately for the weather while waiting at the bus stop.
Students are only allowed to ride their assigned bus to and from their designated pick-up and drop-off locations. Drivers and/or aides are NOT allowed to make exceptions.
Y5/Kindergarten students are required to have a drop off waiver or list of authorized persons on file for drop off; if there is no waiver and there is no parent/guardian or authorized person at the stop at the time of drop off, the student will be returned to their building. When you select the Y5/K grade level on the transportation registration form, you will be directed to make those selections.
It is the parent's responsibility to provide supervision for their 1st-12th grade student at drop off.
Utilizing the school district's transportation is a privilege for your student and not a requirement of the district. If you have further questions regarding transportation, you may find the following helpful: Michigan Department of Education.
