Transportation for Pulaski School District
Important Busing Information:
Based on the recommendations from the Department of Public Instruction (DPI), the Department of Health Services (DHS), and Pulaski School District leaders, PSD has implemented procedures for the start of the 2020-2021 school year for all students including EC, 4K, and K through 12. This will help the District establish safe and efficient transportation plans while reducing the risks to students and bus drivers during this unprecedented time. Due to Covid-19, plans are to keep groups of students together as much as possible, which includes school buses, classrooms, lunch rooms, activities and sports, etc. For this reason, we have implemented a rule of allowing only one bus route per student until further notice.
We request that you plan accordingly as you will ONLY be able to use ONE BUS STOP LOCATION. Until further notice, students will not be allowed to ride more than one bus, so if you require varying schedules at multiple locations (such as a blended family), you must plan for ONE location (ie: either mom or dad's residence, or a daycare provider). Select the location that works best for you and your child. It will be the parent's responsibility to provide transport if you need to use more than one location. As an example, if your child attends a daycare provider, the child will be set up to ride the bus route that services that daycare only. Your childs bus must be the same in the morning and afternoon.

If you are unsure, sign up now and then contact our office later if you decide to waive the bus service. We understand this causes some difficulty for parents, but in order to keep the safety of all students out of as much risk as possible, we must provide reasonable uniformity for all students when it comes to bus routes. If we are able to change this in the future, we will revise our procedures and notify parents that require two bus routes to be scheduled.
We understand that guidelines may change based on new information and data, so if your child will NOT be riding the school bus this year, please send an email with your child's FIRST NAME/LAST NAME, SCHOOL/GRADE to: Patty Linsmeyer stating that you are waiving bus transportation.
WEDNESDAY ELEMENTARY SCHEDULES: Note that high school and middle school students do not attend school on Wednesday, so the pick up and drop off times for elementary students will be adjusted on Wednesdays. You must notify our office whenever your child will not need to ride the bus either to or from school. Contact Patty Linsmeyer 24 hours in advance email@example.com
