    As of January 13, 2020, all secondary students are required to have and use a visible, current school year issued ID badge to access transportation service.  Your student's first original school year ID will be supplied by the district; all replacement ID's may be purchased at your student's school office.  As of, October 15, 2018, a No ID - No Ride procedure has been implementedAll secondary (6 - 12 grade) students are required to have a visible, valid school ID to access transportation services. All secondary schools offer a Temporary ID sticker for students to wear on days they may have forgotten or misplaced their School ID. Please check with the school office for their procedure in issuing temporary ID's.  The temporary ID issued by the school is a valid school ID and your student may access transportation services without interruption. If your student I.D has been lost or vandalized, a new ID must be purchased at the school office. Immediate payment is not necessary to purchase a new ID, the fee can be charged to the students' account. 

    Students who access transportation services using a temporary ID for three or more days in a row may receive a written behavior report and may be suspended from the bus if two or more written reports are submitted. 

    There will be no change to the 
    elementary I.D. process.  WPS staff will continue to work with our elementary students to teach the importance of visible, valid IDs on the bus and in the school.  Our written behavior report process will be followed for elementary students that become habitual at forgetting their ID’s.  Students may be suspended from the bus if two or more written reports are submitted.
