The Transportation Department would like to remind students and parents that bus times can vary. Things like traffic, weather, and other students on the route not riding that day can change your pickup time. It is always best to be at your stop 5-10 minutes early. We appreciate your patience.

Please check PowerSchool for your child's bus route and times.


Transportation Policy

It is the policy of the district that students only ride their own bus to and from school. This is for the safety of the children. Please do not make arrangements to have your child ride to or from school with another student.


Forms

Orchard Primary Transportation Form
Middle School Transportation Form
High School Transportation Form

This is not an official change of address form. To officially change your address you must visit your child's school and provide proof of residency (driver's license, tax bill, utility bill, etc.). This form is used by the Transportation Department only.


Driver Training

Dean Transportation provides extensive training for the driving staff. Each new driver receives a minimum of 30 hours of on-the-road training before being allowed to drive students. The State of Michigan also provides 18 hours of beginning bus driver class work for all new drivers to receive credentials.

Training covers many topics related to driving safety, child behavior management, and the health and well being of students. Also, each driver is required to attend a state offered six (6) hour training program every two years to maintain their credentials.
