If your child has an Individual Education Plan or attends our Head Start classroom your student is eligible for transportation. During the IEP you will be asked if you would like to access transportation. Transportation can be (to and) from home or (to and) from a childcare center within the LWSD boundaries. Parents can have transportation to and from school/day care or for only one way: either pick up or drop off.
Eligible families can decide at any time to access transportation; however it can take a few weeks to get set up so please provide plenty of notice. The bus driver will contact the family the night prior to the first day of transportation. They will inform you what time your child will be picked up or dropped off and where the bus stop will be. Please be at the bus stop 5 minutes before the pickup/drop off time.
Once transportation is set up for your student if you need to make a change you will need to work with your child’s teacher, and they will send in a new transportation request to the transportation department. If your child does not access transportation for 3 consecutive days, the driver will no longer stop on their route unless parent notifies transportation of their child's absence.
To report an absence to transportation call: 425-936-1120
