We Educate for Excellence


Transportation Department


The District’s transportation policies are aimed at providing a safe, efficient, and economical mode of getting students to and from school. Transportation shall be scheduled in a way that best serves the educational interests of the students while considering the safety of our students. In an effort to be fiscally responsible and to maintain operational feasibility, efficiencies including single designated pick-up/drop-off locations and group bus stops will remain in effect.

Our goal is to make transportation for our students as timely, safe and pleasant as possible!
