Transportation is provided for students who reside more than one mile from school.  One bus run will be operated in the AM and one in the PM.  Schedules will be posted on the district website, at the schools, and printed in the local newspaper in advance of school beginning.  The first week schedules and bus stops may be adjusted slightly as bus routes are fine-tuned with respect to times and student rider numbers. 

General Guidelines - If your student rides a school bus, parents are asked to review general bus rules with their students.  Those rules and regulations are distributed the first week of school by your bus driver and need to be signed are returned to the driver.

Children Walking to SchoolParents, plan a Safe Route to School with your child.  Caution them to choose intersections for crossing that are regulated by stop-and-go signals, traffic signs, or intersections that are designated with school crossing signs with good visibility in good directions.

Sequim School District reserves the right to change bus routes and times as needed.  Students in grades K-12 ride on buses together. Please check your student’s bus route and pick-up time listed below, as some routes have changed since last year.     

First day of school:  The Transportation Department strongly encourages all students who intend to ride the bus do so on the morning of the first day of school (September 4, 2019). This will enable parents, students and bus drivers to become familiar with the bus stop routine.  Students who plan to ride the bus need to be at their stop five minutes ahead of pick-up time. Times and pick-up points listed below are approximations until exact enrollment and passenger loads are fixed.  Please remember, if a bus passes waiting students, it may not be their bus. 

For the first day, new students will be picked up at all stops along routes, except for Hwy 101 East and West routes.  The following are routes, not necessarily bus stops. Students will be advised after two or three days where the permanent bus stop will be.  Every effort will be made to space stops approximately one-half mile apart, thus requiring a quarter-mile walk along routes.  Exceptions will be made only on a case-by case basis due to special circumstances such as student safety or handicapping conditions. 

Safety reminder for Hwy 101 West & East students:  All students living on Hwy 101 West or East must catch the bus at their designated stop.  Do not cross the highway to catch the bus at a later time.

Reminder for A.M. Greywolf Elementary students:  Greywolf Elementary students are transferred to a shuttle bus in the Fir Street stadium parking lot. 

Kindergarten Bus Drop-off Requirements:  Bus drivers will not drop Kindergarten students at stops unless a parent or other designated adult is there to meet the child.  If there is no adult at the stop, the child will be brought back to the transportation center. 

Parents, for younger elementary students on regular bus runs, please have someone at the stop to meet the students, particularly on Hwy 101 East and West. 

Students will ride the same route bus in the A.M. and the P.M. unless otherwise noted.  Students who wish to get off at a stop other than their own, or who wish to ride a bus other than their own must have an official bus pass issued by the school office. Hand- written notes from parents will not be accepted.
