    E-LINK IS NOW ACTIVE

    Update for 2021: 

    Starting January 19, 2021, our school district will resume bus transportation for some students on a limited basis. Due to the pandemic, we have fewer bus drivers available and are working to allow for more space between seated students on a bus. To potentially reduce the number of riders, the District conducted a parent survey of K-12 families to verify who will need district transportation when schools reopen, and who is willing/able to transport their own students. Bus routes have been adjusted to support those students who requested transportation on the parent survey.

     

    New routes currently available in E-Link are for students in grades K-5 who requested transportation. Routes for secondary students (grades 6-12) who need transportation will be added later. 

     

    Per the 2021 AM/PM Elementary schedule, bus routing for K-5 students will run Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday -- with no student routes on Wednesday, which are designated for asynchronous at-home learning. These routes will apply as grade-level groups are phased in to return for in-person learning, starting with hybrid Kindergarten students on January 19.

     

    Current COVID safety precautions include:

    • Parents/guardians must complete a health screening and attestation for their child - PRIOR to entering a bus or school - each day a student is scheduled to attend in-person.
    • All students must wear a mask on the bus.
    • Dress warmly as windows may be down to improve ventilation. 
    • Please read and follow these Transportation Protocols, outlined in the online Return-to-School Safety Handbook for Families.

     

    E-Link is an online program that allows families to verify which school a student is assigned to attend and bus route details, based on their home address.  Please read completely through the following directions, then click on E-Link for your student’s information:

    Students should always arrive at their stop five minutes before their scheduled time. As needs arise throughout the school year, pick up and drop off times may be adjusted.

     

    Bus Bulletin Notification Service:  The District partners with Bus Bulletin to provide timely notifications to parents/guardians when bus delays of 10 minutes or more may impact a specific bus route. When traffic congestion, schedule changes or other incidents may impact a specific route, the Transportation Department works to send a brief email or text message to families who have signed up for the free Bus Bulletin service.  NOTE: Parents/guardians who may have signed up in the past will need to log into their account and verify their route numbers, as all routes have been refreshed. To learn more, click on Bus Bulletin
