Requesting alternate drop off
Special permission to ride a bus may be granted if room is available. A parent or guardian must send a written note to the school with their student. The note must include date, bus stop, and reason for request. If riding home with another student, please include name of the other student. The school office will issue a bus pass for your student to present to the bus driver. Drivers will not accept hand written notes. To request long-term or permanent changes, please complete the Transportation Request Form..
The Bus Will Not Wait
Remember to always be at your stop 5 minutes prior to your assigned bus stop time. Please remember that traffic, weather and other unforeseen circumstances may cause some routes to be delayed.
Bus Route Delays
Published bus routes are followed as closely as possible. From time to time, an accident, road construction, or other unforeseen event can cause a bus to be delayed significantly. Drivers are trained to ensure your student's safety. Unpredictable delays are difficult to assess and therefore individual communication to families of students on delayed routes is not practical. Concerned parents or guardians are welcome to contact transportation at 360-804-2650 with any questions.
Weather Related Limited Transportation
When weather makes traveling unsafe in designated neighborhoods in the district, "limited" transportation will be announced on local radio and TV stations. This information will also be published at www.flashalert.net and on the district website https://www.monroe.wednet.edu. Limited bus transportation will remain in effect the entire day. Detailed information regarding your neighborhood can be found on the district website under transportation and at your local school.
