Bus registration for 2020/2021 school year is now DUE!
*Important: All riders from Kindergarten to Grade 12 need to register annually, in order to have a seat on the bus. Seats are limited and only registered riders may use the bus service. Due to space limitations some routes may have a waitlist. It is very important to maintain up-to-date rider lists for drivers, especially in regards to contact tracing during the pandemic. Please register only if you will be a continuous rider (3-4 days per week).
Please note that due to COVID-19, transportation services may change (i.e. route alterations, rider capacity etc.) and will be communicated as soon as available on the District website. Further information regarding COVID protocols for riding the bus will be posted on the District website.
Changing student demographics requires the Transportation Department conduct a review of the bus routes each year, and make adjustments where required. Similar to previous years, space on a school bus for the 2020/21 school year will be allocated first to eligible riders.
The online registration form and information regarding your catchment school website is available on the District website. Once approved by the Transportation Department you will receive a confirmation email with details of Bus route, stop time and location for your student. Registration forms are also available at your catchment school and from school bus drivers.
Please read and discuss the Procedure and Code of Conduct with your student before you accept the expectations for school bus transportation.
Bus Schedules for both East and West routes can be found here: Bussing & Transportation Route Information. All bus alerts are posted on the main page of the SD8 website or call the Bus Line at 1-888-352-0008.
