Transportation Request Form

Bus route planning for the 2018/19 school year is in full swing. Each summer, we check with parents of students regarding transportation for the upcoming school year.  If your child will not be riding the bus this coming school year, please contact our office -- by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone 419-436-4105
If they will not be riding, we will remove them from the route list.  Should they need to be put back on the route, you can call the transportation office and we will put them back on a route.  This helps us keep our ridership accurate to ensure we have a spot for all students who will be riding the bus.

Please turn in completed alternate request forms to students building. May take up to five(5) school days to be processed.  (Click here for Alternate Transportation Request Form)

Thank you for your assistance! 

Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
