New to 2013/2014

The new transportation policy is a step toward eliminating notes for transportation changes to elementary (grade 1-5) level students.

Board Policy has not changed regarding no notes/bus changes for preK and kindergarten students. This remains the same.

The 2013-14 Pre-Approval Bus Pass Policy is in place for Grades 1-5.

The purpose is to reduce end of day confusion with bus changes — time consuming for staff and a safety concern for our students.

Procedures are as follows:

  1. Parents must submit a BUS PASS to the transportation office by 10:00 am the morning of the transportation change. Parents will be notified by 1:00 pm if request is approved or denied.
  2. Paper copies of the Bus Pass downloaded here:
    • Go to District Information, then Transportation.
    • Print and complete form.
    • Fax to Transportation 616-669-4876
    • Scan/email document Jane Bykerk. Email
  3. Submit Online Bus Pass Note
