The mission of the transportation department is to provide the safest and most efficient transportation we can for our students. We have a staff of professionally trained and certified school bus drivers who use the utmost care in bringing our students to and from school each day. Our administrative and office staffs strive to provide prompt and courteous services to every student who rides a bus.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR TRANSPORTATION?
The South Lake Schools Board of Education has approved transportation for students living the following distances from school:
Kindergarten ½ mile and beyond (unless a major street must be crossed)
Grade 1 1 mile and beyond (unless a major street must be crossed)
Grades 2-5 1 mile and beyond
Grades 6-8 1 ½ miles and beyond
Anyone with questions concerning a child’s eligibility to ride should contact the Transportation Department at 586-435-1622. Once the exact number of bus riders is known, the locations, times and/or runs may change. Parents will be informed of all changes as they occur.
