  • Having purchased a bus pass for the 2018-19 School Year does not guarantee you a seat for the next school year.

  • Buses do fill up and if you are required to change buses mid-year there is no guarantee that there will be room available on the bus you require

  • Bus passes are required for in-town bussing.  Bus passes will be issued when students are registered at Central Office and payment is received. Students will not be permitted to ride the in-town bus without a bus pass.  In-town bussing is subject to availability and space is limited.
