Transportation

  • Walking

    Students who live within ½ mile of the school are considered walkers.  The school coordinates student school patrols who will assist students in crossing streets.

    Busing

    Busing is provided for students whose addresses are within the school’s transportation area and more than ½ mile from the school.

    Bus riding is a privilege that can be suspended for inappropriate behavior as determined by the St. Paul Transportation Guidelines, which include:

    • Students may only ride their assigned bus and get on and off at their assigned stop.
    • Students may not ride another bus, under any circumstances.
    • Parents/Guardians may not board the school bus for any reason.
    • If your family moves during the course of the school year, call the school office to arrange a new bus stop.

    Questions and problems should be addressed to the school office and will be referred to the St. Paul Transportation Department as necessary.  A notice of 3-4 days is required for a transportation change to be made.

    If an issue arises after the school office is closed for the day that needs immediate attention (i.e. student has not arrived home yet), please call transportation directly at 651-696-9600.  Be prepared to tell them your student’s name, school and route number.
