In order to simplify the school bus registration process the School District 73 Transportation Department will be using Transportation Registration Cards. School bus registration cards will be mailed out after August 18, 2014.
Students who were registered on the buses for the 2013-2014 school year will receive registration cards in the mail.
All new students who are registered with the district before July 31, 2014 and are eligible for transportation in accordance with School District No. 73 Policy 1118.1 “Transportation of Students” will also receive a registration card.
Students who as a result of advancing a grade become eligible for transportation will also receive a registration card.
SD 73 says the registration cards indicate the school of attendance, bus number, bus stop and times for both the AM pickup and PM drop off.
It is expected that all students will take their assigned bus at the designated time. The times indicated on the registration cards are subject to change based on ridership.
The registration cards are to be given to the driver on the first day of transportation in order to be registered on the bus.
If a student has not received a registration card, that student should ask the bus driver for a registration form. This form must be filled out and returned to the driver.
Current Bus riders please read your registration card carefully as your bus number, or pick up time may have changed from the previous year.
