Bus Routes

Road To Return

  • School bus service generally will be provided for students who attend their assigned neighborhood school, and for elementary students who live more than one mile from school and for secondary students who live more than two miles from school. Busing will not be provided for students who are Open Enrolled.
  • The ability to provide busing will also be limited due to COVID-19 health/safety guidelines. Current guidelines for distancing on buses limits the number of students allowed per bus which in turn results in less students being bused.
  • Bus capacity will be restricted due to physical distancing requirements on buses (in accordance with local and state public health orders).
  • All students and staff are required to wear face coverings while on a DCSD bus, unless they cannot medically tolerate a face covering.
  • Parents/guardians are expected to take their child’s temperature before leaving the house and to withhold an ill student from riding the bus.
  • Students must sit one per seat on the school bus starting with the second row of the bus.
  • Students are not permitted to change seats while riding on the bus.

  • Within walk zones

  • Within gated communities where stops can be moved to gates one mile from home

  • Transportation for field trips, Before and After School Care, International Baccalaureate, band, etc.
