Busing and Boundaries
The District and its partner Durham School Services put students first by providing safe and reliable transportation to and from school for students who qualify.
Notification of bus issues and route delays
Parents and guardians whose children ride the bus can sign up for alerts about route delays and other issues specifically affecting their children.
Please contact the Transportation Coordinator if you have questions about school busing and transportation.

If at any time your student will not be riding the bus as scheduled, please notify Durham School Services: 515-233-5424.
Beginning with the 2017/2018 school year, students may only have one morning pick up location, and one afternoon drop off location. For safety reasons, we can no longer accommodate requests to be picked up/dropped off at different locations on different days. Please plan accordingly.
Students are not allowed to use bus transportation to ride to a friend’s home that is not on their assigned route.
