Transportation: Arrival & Dismissal
Transportation is available for preschool students who have individual education programs, as determined by their special education needs. For all other students, transportation is the responsibility of the parent, guardian or caregiver.
Please closely review our arrival and dismissal procedures below to ensure the safe transport of all our students.
Specialized Transportation Service
Some children who qualify for special education services may also qualify for specialized transportation services due to needs identified in his/her evaluation and Individual Education Plan. Children who qualify can only be bussed within Lakota district lines.
To ensure your child’s safety, students will be issued a bus/transportation tag to wear on his/her backpack. Lakota staff members will get students from the buses and take them directly to their classroom teachers. The same process will occur at dismissal to take students to their assigned buses.
District Transportation Information
The role of Lakota's Transportation Department is to guarantee safe, efficient and cost-effective transportation of students to and from their schools.
Over the years, the district has worked with its contracted bus service company, Petermann, to regularly review bus routes in an effort to safely transport as many students as possible within the available budget.
WE are here to help! If you have questions regarding bus route information or the transportation of your child, please contact us.
Calls are answered in the order received. Please understand that we receive a particularly high volume of calls at the start of the school year and hold/wait times may be longer than normal.
