  • With COVID -19 Restrictions and guidelines in place for the 2020-2021 school year, families are being encouraged to transport their students. The following procedures will be in place for families in need of the yellow bus services. 

    All parents should take their child’s temperature and check for COVID symptoms while at home and keep your child home if they have a fever or COVID related symptoms.

    For the 2020-21 school year, the following are requirements for all students to receive WPS yellow bus services. 

    1. Adhering to guidelines in place for public transportation, space will be limited per bus, students’ names must be on the route roster. 
      1. Student route assignments are determined by the home address listed on your students’ school record.
      2. Students may only use the stop location they are assigned to.
      3. Please call our office directly, at 303.427.1977 to confirm your student is on a roster. 
    1. Student ID’s
      1. Students are required to use their ID, to scan on /off at each location of entrance/exit.

      1. Masks must be worn while on the bus.
    1. Seat assignments

    As of January 13, 2020, all 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 implemented. 

     As of School year 2020-2021, all students have received their ID issued by their school of attendance and are expected to scan on and off as they enter and exit the school bus.   Scanning the 2020-2021 school ID creates a live roster of passengers at any given time, making your students’ ID an important safety feature while using WPS transportation services.    Students, who receive morning bus services without having their I.D., will be directed to obtain a new ID  from the school office prior to riding the bus from school to home. Students will not receive bus services home without their I.D.

    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. 

    We appreciate your attention to this requirement, and we look forward to providing yellow school bus services for your family this 2020-2021 school year.
