Parents and Students

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

You have chosen the safest, most efficient, and most environmentally friendly way to transport your student to and from school. Click on the link to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to learn about school bus safety.
We strive to provide a bus service that will enhance your student’s educational day. 

Find Bus Schedules via Skyward Parent Portal

You can find your bus schedules in Skyward. Log in and look for the transportation tab. This info is updated each morning by 9:00 a.m. Be sure to check your Skyward account the day before school starts to get updated times, stops, and bus numbers.

Scheduling Transportation Guidelines

  • Consistency is SAFETY!  
  • Choose one location in the morning and one location in the afteroon and stick to the plan. 
  • Avoid changes. Any changes during the school year must be submitted at least one school day prior to taking effect.
  • If you have a sudden, same-day change, make plans to pick-up your child from school or from their scheduled bus stop.


Please keep in mind, we provide a bus service, not a door-to-door taxi service. Bus stops are located, bus stop times are published, and students are expected to wait for the bus at their designated bus stop. Service to other students is delayed when buses have to wait on students. Therefore, drivers are instructed to depart bus stops on time. 

Bus stop safety rules must be followed.  See School Bus Stop Safety Tips for Students and Parents.
Students are expected to be at their designated bus stop, waiting for the bus. 

Students are expected to be at their assigned designated pick-up location ten (10) minutes prior to the published stop time. Bus times may vary, allow ten (10) minutes after the published bus stop time before leaving the designated pick-up location or calling the school office.

Q: Can I call the office to change my student from a bus rider to a parent pick up or walker?

A: Yes, any parent who chooses to pick up or have their student walk must call the school by noon.  Allow enough time for the office to locate the student to relay the message. The office reserves the right to verify the identity of the caller. However, if the student boards the bus, the parent must go to the designated stop to get the student. 

Q: Do I need to notify the transportation office or driver if my child is not riding the bus?

A: No, if your child is not out waiting for the bus at the designated stop and time, the driver will not stop. If your child does not ride the bus in the afternoon, the driver will not make that stop.

Q: Can I make a short-term change to my child’s bus schedule?

A: No. Please notify the school you will pick up your child or make plans to pick them up at their regularly scheduled route stop. 

Q: Can I sign up for a bus if my child won’t ride the bus every day?

A: Yes, you can reserve a seat for your student on a bus if they will generally ride the bus. However, if they will only ride the bus a few times a year, wait to schedule that transportation when a ride is needed.

Q: Why have these changes been implemented?

1.) For the safety of all students.

2.) To avoid multiple phone calls and notes to the school office and teachers during the school day at the last minute.

3.) To prevent students from experiencing the stress of not knowing their schedule and riding the wrong bus. These events are also stressful for parents.

4.) To provide consistency and efficiency in school bus routes which reduces costs and allows Wa-Nee Transportation to continue to provide extracurricular travel at no cost to the students.
