School bus transportation is a service provided by the school to students who live more than 1 1/2 miles from the school. It is the goal of the Transportation Department to provide safe and reliable transportation on all of our school’s buses. Please contact Pete List if you have questions that are not answered below. You can also refer to the “Bus Conduct” section under “Student Expectations” in the Student Planner Handbook for more information.

Transportation Department's Frequently Asked Questions:
1. My child is new to the area. How do we find out what bus he’ll need to ride and what time it picks him up?
You will usually receive this information during registration. You can also find bus information in your student’s Skyward account. Log in to Skyward. Click on “Student Information” (located on the left hand side), and then click on the “Bus Schedule” tab near the top where you will see your child’s bus number and pickup time. If you still have additional questions, please call Mr. List at the phone number listed above.
