Kindergarten & First Grade Transportation Guidelines
Buses will not drop off a kindergarten or first grade student if a parent or previously designated adult is not at the stop to receive the student. (An exception is if a student has an older sibling also getting off the bus at the same time). If there is no one at the stop to receive your child, the bus will continue on its route dropping off the remaining students. It may stop back or return the child to his/her school. For safety reasons, students are permitted to ride only the bus to which they are assigned and are only allowed to get on or off the bus at the stop to which they are assigned. Requests for permanent changes to the bus schedule or bus stop must be in writing and submitted to the Transportation Department. In cases of an emergency, contact your school office for a bus pass.
Day Care Transportation
Parkland will transport a student to or from a day care facility or day care provider under the following rules:
- The location of the day care provider or facility must be in the home school attendance boundary. See Day Care List by School.
- Parkland School District will not re-route buses for day care requests.
To arrange for transportation to or from a day care facility or care giver please contact your child’s school. Requests will become effective only after adequate time has been given to make the changes and properly notify all persons concerned (48-72 hours). Telephone requests for permanent changes will not be accepted. Notes requesting changes signed by parents will not be accepted by bus drivers. Any change in the case of emergencies shall be made through the school principal who will issue a temporary bus pass.
