Student Transportation
  • Students arrive to and from school via various modes of transportation. Deerfield Beach High School encourages students to arrive to school on time no matter how they get to campus. This page has been designed to give parents and students useful information in regards to student transportation.

This department consists of District Pupil Transportation Operations supporting its five Transportation Terminals located throughout Broward County, Florida.

    There are over 1,000 school buses used by Broward District Schools on daily routes, transporting more than 80,000 students to and from school, and driving more than 18 million miles to over 290 locations.

    Who Is Eligible For Bus Transportation?
    All students living more than two miles from assigned schools (pursuant to Section F.S. 1006.21, Florida Statutes). With certain exceptions, student transportation is the responsibility of the parent for those students living less than two miles from a school.

Pick-up and Drop-off

  • Parents wishing to drive their child to school between 7:00am-7:30am and/or 2:30pm-3:00pm can enter from the North side of Deerfield Beach High School. The gate off Buck Pride Way, near Butler Stadium will open at 6:45am and/or 2:10pm.

    When entering the loop, do not stop in the red zone to pick-up or drop-off students. This is not a loading and unloading zone. Stopping here is a major cause of the backups that occur in the loop and on Buck Pride Way. Please do not drop off students outside the gates, as loading or unloading in this area may subject you to a $100 fine. Also the front entrance and student parking lot, off of NE 5th Terrace, are not locations to drop-off or pick-up students.

STUDENT DRIVERS

  • Students who drive to and from school are required to park in the student parking lot; access gates are off Buck Pride Way or NE 5th Terrace which will open at 6:45am and/or 2:20pm. They must park in the student parking lot and may not park on neighborhood streets.
