Bus Safety Information/Bus Planner/Courtesy Seating


Resources on Student Transportation Safety have been developed by the District. They are available online and are expected to be viewed and discussed in the classroom, early in the school year, as well as communicated to parents.

Please review each of the following with your child (click on each to view):

  1. NLESD Bus safety video 
  2. Expectations on the bus
  3. Bus safety tips pamphlet

Early in the year we will conduct an evacuation drill to ensure bus eligible students are familiar with the procedure.


Just a reminder to the memo sent in June: the Portal can be accessed here.  Parents can create an account and add their child.  They will be able to see if their child is eligible for transportation, and if eligible, what their transportation schedule is (i.e. route, bus stop location, pickup/drop-off times and map of their house in relation to the location of their assigned bus

stop).  It will also allow the Student Transportation Division to provide notifications directly to parents as needed and it provides an automatic notification to a parent if their child’s transportation schedule changes (for example: if a bus stop is changed or there is a need to redesign routes for your school mid-year).  To add your child, you will need their student ID.  This can be found on PowerSchool. 



If your child is not eligible for the bus, you may apply for courtesy seating.  A fillable application can be sent to Mr. Brake ([email protected])

Courtesy Seat Application

Please note, applications must be received by FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17th (second Friday of the school year).  Applications will be processed after that time and applicants will be notified if they are accepted or denied.   This could take up to the first week of October, so arrangements will need to be made until approval.
