BUS TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION
The information on the Final Form is required for every student attending Shawnee Local Schools.
Students will be assigned only one pickup and one take home location. The only exception to this rule will be documented, court ordered shared custody.
In order for Shawnee Local Schools to provide a safe/quality transportation program for our students, these guidelines must be followed:
- Per Shawnee School’s Board Policy, Pick Up and Take Home may be different locations, but must be the same everyday of the week.
- The information provided on this form must be current and accurate.
- If any changes occur during the school year a new form is required 24 hours prior to the effective date of the change.
*** TRANSPORTATION NOTICE ***
Please be advised, due to safety concerns for the students, the full capacity of many of the buses, and the number of bus passes issued, it has been determined this has become an unsafe practice.
The School Board has agreed that starting with the 2020/2021 School year, we will no longer issue bus passes. In the case where no one will be at the assigned bus stop for your student, parents will need to have their student picked up at school. This is for the SAFETY of our students.
We appreciate your cooperation in helping us keep the children safe.
Please feel free to contact the Transportation Department if you have questions.
