Our school district currently contracts with Safe-Way Bus Company for student transportation. Elementary students who live one mile or more from their assigned school, and secondary students who live 1.5 miles or more from their assigned school, are eligible for district-provided transportation.

Students who attend daycare or stay at an address during the school day that qualifies for bussing are eligible to ride the bus from that location. See the Daycare/Alternative Address section below. Furthermore, Safe-Way Bus Company does offer a pay-to-ride transportation option. More information can be found on the Pay-To-Ride section.
