For after school sporting activities, students are transported back to the high school at various times in the evening and during the day on weekends depending on the sport they are playing. If a bus is later than expected parents should contact the coach of that sporting event directly.

    Students meeting the criteria for transportation will receive a postcard from our transportation provider, Ridge Road Express, confirming their transportation eligibility, as well as their bus schedule.

    Students with disabilities may receive transportation services from locations within the district’s transportation limits, if specifically called for in their Individual Education Plan (IEP). These arrangements are made between the District CSE Chairperson and Ridge Road Express.
