Transportation Home Page

Be aware that your child(ren)'s transportation (busing) could change - Due to an increase in student numbers, high volume on the buses and/or opening of housing. We make every effort to keep parent and your child's school informed of any changes as they occur.

Please check the school calendars for any early dismissals. Keep in mind that if you need to change your child(ren)'s afternoon drop-off point due to early dismissal or otherwise, please contact your child(ren)'s school so a bus pass can be written.

Reminder: The school and transportation need to be informed of anyone who has permission to get your child on and off the bus. We appreciate being informed for the safety of your child(ren).

Indian River CSD Policy: All Kindergarten children must have a parent or authorized person at the bus stop.
