Busing returns to pre-pandemic levels

Busing returns to pre-pandemic levels
Busing returns to pre-pandemic levels

As the new school year begins this fall, transportation to and from school will be restored to our pre-pandemic levels:

  • Elementary (preK-5) = Student living .5 miles or further from school can ride a bus
  • Secondary (grades 6-12) = Students living 1 mile or further from school can ride a bus
  • GATE (Gifted and Talented Education)  = Students living 1 mile or further from Stillwater Middle School can ride a bus

Bus routes will be drawn in the coming weeks, and all families who are eligible for transportation will receive their route information prior to the start of school.

  • All eligible students in grades K-8 will automatically be scheduled to a bus route. (Click here if your child requires transportation from a location other than your home address, or if you wish to decline transportation).
  • High school students in grades 9-12 will need to register for transportation. (Note: If you already registered for busing this spring, there is no need to re-register at this time.) 

We know how important safe and reliable transportation is to our families and we are committed to working with our new vendor, Schmitty & Sons, to ensure quality service for the new school year.

Questions about transportation?

Contact our Transportation Office at or 651-351-8377. You can also contact Schmitty & Sons directly at 651-309‐4601 to report any issues with busing.
