Empty Seats/Courtesy Seating – Not in effect until October 1

OSTA is responsible for processing and approving all empty seat requests after October 1.  Please DO NOT place your child on a bus until s/he has been assigned to a stop.  Your child’s safety, and that of other students, could be compromised. Empty seats are allocated based on availability, age, distance and a number of other parameters. Empty Seat Application


Get in the Zone!  The Walk and Roll Zone!

School zone safety is everyone’s responsibility.  If you live in the Walk Zone, we encourage you to walk your child to school instead of driving.  Or Walk a Block…Park away from the school and walk the rest of the way. For more information regarding pedestrian safety: Walk and Roll Zone
