The District is committed to having a safe and efficient student transportation program available to it’s students. Transportation is fee-based, and bus routes are established to serve the greatest number of students with maximum safety and efficiency.
Bus passes and/or student ID cards will be distributed to students after school pictures have been taken. These passes/IDs must be shown when boarding the bus. Detailed information regarding student behavioral rules and regulations is available online.
Routes will vary somewhat from year to year, and changes may be necessary after the schedule has been put into operation. An emergency route system will be employed on a temporary basis if regular routes are unsafe or impassable.
Parents are required to provide transportation whenever children are detained or expected to come before school for disciplinary or other reasons. Also, if a student is temporarily disabled due to an illness or injury, that child’s bus stop may be temporarily adjusted as long as other bus stops on the route are not delayed and the bus arrival time to school is not affected. Parents of a child with a temporary disability are to contact Allen Albus, Deputy Superintendent of Finance and Operations at 847-604-7402 to request special arrangements.
Children should be at their stop at least five minutes before the bus is to arrive and wait in an orderly manner. We ask your cooperation in developing safe habits for coming to and returning from school, and reserve the right to deny bus privileges to any student who does not exercise proper behavior.
Please be aware that the district reserves the right to utilize video/audio recordings on buses to monitor and maintain a safe environment.

Attention parents: if your student's transportation plans deviate from his/her normal plan, a Temporary Transportation Change form must be filled out and submitted to the school office on or before the day of the change. This may include situations such as your child being picked up if they normally ride the bus, staying after school for a Brainstormers' class, or going home with a classmate. For the elementary schools, please send the transportation change form to school in the morning with your child in their take home folder. Last minute requests will be accommodated in an emergency situation.
A Temporary Transporation Change form must also be filled out for your student each time they use a 10-pass for bus transportation!
Due to lack of funding at the state level, the Illinois State Board of Education has informed us that the Parent/Guardian State Pupil Transportation Reimbursement Program has been suspended.
If you have any questions, please call the District Administrative Center at 847-235-9657.
