A bus ride to and from school is provided if the home address is more than:
- One and a half miles for high school and middle school students.
- One mile for elementary students.
State regulation requires that no one except school personnel and school children regularly assigned to a school transportation vehicle for a particular route and schedule may ride a school bus, unless she/he has received prior authorization from the appropriate school administrator and/or the Transportation Department. The Transportation Department will grant authorization to:
Permission to Ride a Different Bus
If your child will ride home with a friend or on a different bus, please send a note granting your permission so that she/he can give it to an administrator at their school, who will approve the note which will then be given to the bus driver. This helps us discourage students from riding a bus after school to a destination that you have not approved.
