Registration - Parent Information

Online bus registration opens on Monday, June 5th. Parents are strongly encouraged to register students promptly to ensure a seat on the bus. Seating is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. If necessary, students may be placed on a waitlist until seating becomes available. Due to the number of students requiring transportation, we are unable to make exceptions for late registrants.

**Please note that new registrants will not be accepted during the following dates: Monday, August 28th through Friday, September 8th.  Any student requiring transportation that has not registered prior to the first week of school will not be added to the program until Monday, September 11th.

The Business Office no longer accepts walk-in payments. All payments must be made online at the time of registration, either throuh MySchoolBucks or via check made out and sent to the following:

Payments must be received by the prescribed date for students to maintain their ridership. Waitlisted students will be given consideration in the absence of on-time payments. If you require a fee waiver, please do not make a payment. Instead, view the Fee Waiver instructions here.
