Each townsite has a designated 'walk zones' which identifies which addresses are eligible for bussing. Addresses outside the walk zones will be eligible for transportation. If a student's address falls within the designated walk zone, they are considered not eligible for bussing. If your child is not eligible for bussing, please fill out and send us a non-eligible form which is located below. All non-eligible applications will be looked at after all our eligible students are placed on buses, and will only be placed on a bus if room is available.
Please be aware that it takes 3-5 business days for a child to be placed on a bus. This happens once a child is registered and entered into the computer system at the school.
