Getting to School—School Bus Transportation School bus transportation is provided for students who live more than one mile away from their base school, or who require transportation because of special needs. Express bus service is provided for students enrolled in specialty programs and traditional schools. Bus schedules are distributed to individual schools and are posted here on the PWCS Office of Transportation Services Web page.
Important Info for Kindergarten Parents
Kindergarten students must be accompanied to and from bus stops by a parent, guardian, or other designated individual. Those authorized to take custody of kindergarten students must be listed on the Emergency Data Card maintained at the school and they must have identification available when receiving a student at the bus stop. An older sibling who is at least 12 years old may take custody of a kindergarten student at the bus stop. No change of custody is required if an older sibling is riding the bus with a kindergartner unless the parent has indicated otherwise.
