For any questions, please contact our transportation team at 360.279.5570.

Kindergarten Riders

A parent or guardian must be present at the bus stop to pick up their Kindergarten child at the end of the day. If a parent or designated adult is not at the stop, the bus will continue and the parent will be notified to pick up the student at the Transportation department at the end of the bus route. If a guardian is unable to be present, they may designate another adult by submitting a written note to the Transportation Office in advance. The note will be kept on file upon request. Submit your request to the Transportation Director, Cathi Gutierrez.

Buddy Passes

For student safety, Buddy Passes are no longer accepted. Students may only ride on buses specifically assigned to them. This means that students will not be permitted to ride a bus that they are not assigned to, even with a note. Please contact us if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Walking & Biking to School

Our bus drivers, crossing guards, and on-site school staff and volunteers prioritize student safety every day. The district partners with the City of Oak Harbor's Safe Routes to School program to support families with appropriate walking paths, bike routes, bus routes, and traffic control.

If you have any questions regarding walking and biking routes, please call our staff at 360.279.5570. 

Driving to School

Please be cautious and use only the appropriate and designated areas during pick-up and drop-off times at your school. Please refer to your school for specific guidelines for parent pick-up and drop-off, or for driving yourself as a high school student.
