Register for Bus Service

The Laveen School District provides bus transportation to students in Grades Kindergarten-8 who live within a school’s designated transportation zone. These zones are generally one mile outside of the school’s walking zone, but also encompass specific neighborhoods in which a large number of students attend a particular school. Transportation is also provided to special education students with an Individualized Education Plan in which bus service is indicated.

In order to create timely and efficient bus routes we ask families who plan to utilize bus transportation to sign up using the link below. Families who will utilize transportation services only occasionally are also asked to complete the form as this assists our transportation department in building the routes.

Families may change or cancel their transportation request at any time throughout the year by submitting a new form to our Transportation Department. Please allow up to five (5) days for the change to take effect.  Please complete one form for each school of attendance.

Families who do not live within a school’s transportation zone may submit a special request for transportation. This may be approved, however it will be dependent on capacity and if the route’s capacity is reached the student will be ask to utilize another form of transportation.

Kindergartners

Kindergarten students must have an adult or sibling of age, who is listed on the child’s emergency contact list through the school, at the bus stop to receive them upon arrival in the PM at the assigned bus stop. If the student does not have an authorized adult present, and is not unattended, Student will be returned to school.

Curb-to-Curb

Students who receive curb-to-curb transportation must also have an adult present to receive them upon arrival. If the student does not have an authorized adult present, and is not unattended, Student will be returned to school site at the end of the route.

ID Required for Boarding

Students who ride the bus are required to swipe their student identification badge each time they board and exit the bus. This informs our transportation department which students are on board at any given time and ensures students are exiting at their correct stop. No student will be denied morning pick up. However, students who do not have their ID will be sent to their school office to obtain a temporary badge. Replacement badges may be purchased for $5.

Expectations

Bus riders are required to follow all transportation rules by being Safe, Accountable & Respectful. Failure to comply may result in transportation services being rescinded.

COVID-19 Response

Until further notice, students exhibiting symptoms or who are not well are not permitted to ride the bus.  All students and staff are required to wear a face covering at all times while waiting for and on the bus.  Students must maintain proper social distancing at the bus stop and while boarding the bus.  Capacity on the bus will be reduced to no more than one student per seat, unless the students live together.  Students will be assigned a seat and expected to remain seated until their turn to exit the bus.    All personal items are to remain in your backpack while on the bus.  Failure to comply may result in the immediate loss of service.  Buses will be disinfected on a regular basis.
