Find bus stops and times on our Buses page, under the Info section.

We provide bus service to students who live more than a mile from their neighborhood school and students with special needs. We do not normally provide transportation to students who live outside of their normal school boundaries.  

Safe Walking Route

If your child walks to school, please encourage them to use a safe walking route. We suggest using these routes (pdf).

You can pay for meals and many fees and fines directly to our main office or pay online through our district's Touchbase system after August 12. For online payments, you’ll need to know your student’s ID number, which is on report cards and available from our main office.
