Transportation is a privilege and not guaranteed upon enrollment. Continuing and new enrollment students are required to complete a Transportation Request Form and submit it to the Transportation Office. The request will be processed and the parent will be contacted when bus space becomes available.
Students provided with transportation must ride the bus daily. If a student is provided with an alternative transportation on a consistent basis, bus privileges will be revoked and given to a student on the waiting list. Please note that all parents will be required to sign a transportation agreement at the beginning of the year.
HPA realizes that there are times when emergencies arise and you will need to pick your student up, rather than have your student ride the bus for that day. HPA asks that you please call the school office no later than 12 noon. This will allow ample time for HPA staff to notify all necessary departments that your student will not be riding the bus for the day. If a call is received after 12 noon, there will be no guarantee that all the necessary departments will be notified and that the child will be given the message in time for him/her not to ride the bus. Temporary bus passes for students riding the bus for one-time usage or a different bus will not be guaranteed. It is based on space availability per bus.
Please see your School Handbook for rules students need to follow when riding the bus.
