TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM HOME ARE AUTOMATICALLY ASSIGNED. THIS FORM IS FOR AN ALTERNATE STOP OTHER THAN HOME. HOME CHECKBOX IS ONLY IF A CHILD WILL BE GOING TO A DIFFERENT STOP IN THE AM OR PM.
Requests for Colonial School District bus transportation from locations other than the student’s home will be considered only if the student is eligible for transportation, and the stop is on an existing bus run located in the school attendance area to which the student is assigned.
Students will be assigned to bus stops based on the consistent application of a process that involves no more than one accommodation or transition per student. We cannot honor requests for transportation that will vary day to day or week to week.
Requests for a change in transportation will become effective only after adequate time has been given to properly notify all persons concerned and make the necessary changes, approximately three school days. Changes after the start of the school year may take up to four weeks.
Building principals may approve temporary changes for emergencies such as illness in the family, parent out of town, etc. Telephone requests will not be taken for permanent changes. Requests must be submitted on the Transportation Child Care Request Form below and submitted to the Transportation Office. Notes requesting transportation changes signed by parents/guardians will not be accepted by bus drivers.
Transportation Child Care Request Forms should be submitted before July 1 of each school year. Student bus stops revert back to the home location at the end of each school year.
While this procedure may cause parents/guardians temporary inconvenience, we know that you will understand our serious commitment to transporting students to and from school safely, and our need to know at all times which children are on our buses.
We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
If you have any questions you may call the Transportation Office at 610-834-1670.
