What to do if:


  • My child's bus is late for morning pick-up: Call Lynne Gustafson at 218-652-1200
  • My child's bus is late for afternoon drop-off: Call Linda Hanson at 218-652-1212
  • My child is not riding the bus: If your child is not riding in the morning, call the high school office as soon as possible to report student absences. Leave a message if staff doesn't answer, of if you call before 7am. You can also call the Bus Garage and leave a message before 6:30am. If your child is in grades pre-K through 5th and is not riding the bus home in the afternoon, call Linda Hanson at 218-652-1212 to report the absence. 
  • My child would like to ride a different bus to or from school: Bus passes are no longer being granted for students to ride buses other than their own.
  • I would like my child picked up/dropped off at another location other than their normal pick-up/drop-off: If your child is riding the bus they normally ride, but would like to be picked up or dropped off at a different stop, contact the elementary or high school office to arrange the details. If you'd like your student to ride a bus other than their own, bus passes are no longer being granted for students to ride buses other than their own.
  • My child's home address has changed: Contact the district office with changes to home addresses. You will be notified with updated busing information.

Bus Safety and Expectations


Safety is the primary goal of our transportation services here at Nevis. To be successful in our efforts, it is essential for all of us - students, parents, school staff and bus drivers to work together toward this same goal. The Nevis Public School District's Ready to Ride Bus Safety Expectations are posted in every bus. If these expectations are not followed, the school district's discipline procedures are to be followed. Consequences are progressive and may include suspension of bus privileges. Each bus has assigned student monitors and surveillance cameras.
