If your child is being dropped off and/or picked up at an address other than the home address, you must fill out an Alternate Transportation Walker/ Rider form. You may pick up this form at any building or at the Transportation Office located at the bus garage. Each request will be reviewed on a case by case basis for approval. Approval depends on bus capacity for the alternate location.
