New School Year Busing Information

During the first week of school, we ask you to please be patient with the transportation department as we work hard to get your child to and from school safely. In the PM the buses, will be running late for the first few days until students learn where their bus is parked and driver's checking attendance to make sure they have the correct students on board. 

Please have your child standing at the bus stop 5 minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive at the designated place of safety which is required by law and our policy. Waiting in a vehicle is strictly prohibited regardless of inclement weather. (About 20 steps from the roadway in the driveway at a house stop or if on a corner the intersecting sidewalk, your driver will assign the best appropriate place). Your driver will use a hand signal for right or left side (pick up and drop off) to indicate when your child should check in both directions to make sure it is safe, clear of traffic or pedestrians to proceed to or discharge from the bus.  It is required by law and our policy for your child to go the designated place of safety once dropped off at the bus stop and to stay there until the bus leaves the stop location so that the driver can account for where your child is outside of the bus at all times for their safety.  We give an estimated drop off time due to we cannot guarantee how many children will be riding the bus home each day and current traffic conditions.  If you have any questions or if you find this information to be incorrect please don't hesitate to email or call our office at (440) 327-4422.

General Information

All students that live more than 1.5 miles grades 3-8 will be assigned a bus to and from their home area (Please check your mileage distance to make sure you qualify).

All students grade K-2 will receive busing no matter distance to school. High school busing is not available. If your child will be going to/from a babysitter before or after school, you will need to fill out a variance form.  If your child qualifies for busing but will not use our service please, you will need to fill out a busing opt-out form, which will be available on the transportation department homepage soon. If your child needs busing to and from home there is no need to fill out any forms.
