Bus Passes

  • Bus passes are usually sent to the student’s home address 1 – 2 weeks before school starts.
  • If the student has not received a bus pass, the parent or guardian MUST drop off and pick up the student until a bus pass has been given.
  • Parents may contact the Transportation Department at: (754) 321-4000
  • Bus passes must first be used in the morning, and then in the afternoon so that the driver is notified of the new student.
  • All changes for bus passes must be verified through proof of the student’s correct address submitted to the school ‘s office.
