COVID-19 Updates

To honor all requirements around social-distancing, it will be necessary to decrease our bus ridership. We have many students who rely on the school bus to get to and from school every day. To serve the needs of our students who may not have alternate options, we are asking that you "Opt-in" ONLY if your student has no other options for getting to and from school. If your family can get your student to and from school by other means, please select "Opt-out".

We will not be able to allow any riders that are outside of the school's boundary, namely those that have submitted the Space Available Request Form. We will also not be able to allow guest riders that are not assigned to the bus i.e., students will not be permitted to ride with a friend.

After receiving all Opt-in/Opt-out forms the determination for ridership will be based on high-risk students and students who live furthest from the school. 

All forms were sent to families starting July 31st through Infinite Campus.
Form deadline has been extended to August 12th.

Families who OPT-IN will be notified by August 14th if bus transportation will be provided.

For us to provide a safe bus ride for ALL students the following standards must be adhered to:

  • Students who are ill or not feeling well may not ride the bus and should remain at home.
  • Temperature checks should be done at home, prior to entering the bus.
  • All students riding the bus MUST wear a mask unless a health condition exists that precludes mask use.
  • Siblings must sit together to increase capacity allowances.
  • Students will be assigned seats and must load back to front and unload front to back (as instructed by the driver)
  • Students must remain seated and remain in assigned seats until released by the driver.
  • All students must follow all behavior guidelines as posted on the LPS website under Transportation; School Bus Safety. 

Littleton Public Schools Transportation is proud to be part of the largest and safest form of mass transit in the United States. Over half of the 50 million students who attend school in the United States get to and from school in one of almost half a million yellow school buses. According to the American School Bus Council, "Students are about 70 times more likely to get to school safely if they take the school bus instead of traveling by car."

The District operates over 85 buses to transport over 5,500 students and traveling more than 4,000 miles each day. District buses transport students to and from school, extracurricular events, and sporting events, including after hours and on weekends. 

Transporting our students each and every day safely and on time so they are ready to learn is our absolute priority. We want every students' bus ride to be a positive and memorable experience.
