Bus Passes

WHS Bus Information

Please note that students are routed and assigned to buses at a single stop location based on the address they have registered at their school. Waiver students, walkers and students destined to alternate locations other than than their primary home address, e.g. daycare, split household, grandparents, are not eligible for transportation.

Students may inquire about available space on a bus by completing a Transportation Request Form. Completion of forms does not guarantee a bus ride or change in stop location.

Bus Pass Requests

Regular Route Bus Passes

  • Load counts on buses can not be assessed until all eligible riders have had the opportunity to ride their bus. Due to various programs starting in October it is necessary to wait to evaluate available seats. Student enrollment has also increased which puts school buses at or close to capacity.
  • Therefore, regular route bus passes will not be approved for the first month and a half of school until Transportation is able to properly assess available seats. 
  • After mid-October please contact the Main Office to inquire about available daily regular route bus passes. Thank you for your patience during this process.
  • Learn how students obtain a Regular Route Bus Pass.

Activity Bus Passes & Routes

 

How do students obtain a Regular Route Bus Pass?

After Transportation confirms routes at the end of October, regular route bus passes are available from the Main Office before school, during Options or during lunches, based upon availability, as seats are limited. If there is room on the bus, supply the Main Office with a parent / guardian signed note that includes the following information:
  • Date pass is to be effective
  • First and last name of your student
  • First and last name of the student with whom your child is going home
  • Address where your student is disembarking the bus (established stop) - please visit the NSD transportation website to determine the established stop.
  • Indicate duration (today only, or a specific period of dates)
  • Parent signature
  • Open dated passes are not allowed.

If approved, a blue bus pass will be issued to the student by the Main Office that the student must hand to the driver when boarding the bus.

Requests cannot be taken over the phone or by email.

How do students obtain an Activity Bus Pass?

Students need to come into the Main Office before school, during Options, or during lunches to get an Activity Bus Pass each day they need to ride the activity bus with a parent / guardian signed note.

Requests cannot be taken over the phone.

Activity Bus passes are issued on a first-come, first-served basis due to the limited number of seats. The note must include:

If approved, an NSD Activity Bus Pass will be issued to the student by the Main Office that the student must then hand to the driver when boarding the activity bus. 

  • This service is to assist families with after school transportation when students stay after school for activities (sports, clubs, detention, etc).
  • The activity routes do not have the same bus stop locations as the regular routes. One, two or three bus routes cover the same area in the evening that a dozen bus routes regularly cover in the AM/PM. 
  • Bus stops are limited to ensure all students are transported home in a timely manner and the cost to the schools are minimal. 
  • It is the parents' responsibility to select the stop closest to their residence and familiarize their child with this information in the event he/she needs to utilize after school transportation. 

If you have any questions about activity buses, please contact the Transportation Department.
