Westminster Public Schools (WPS) Transportation department is working to restore bus routes for the 2021-2022 school year to levels that were in place prior to the COVID pandemic. Ideally, bus service will resume at all prior stop locations to elementary students who live more than one mile from their assigned neighborhood school, and to middle and high school students who live more than one- and one-half miles from their assigned neighborhood school.
WPS transportation will be following the CDC public health orders and all passengers and staff are required to wear a mask while using transportation services.
Transporting your children in the safest manner is our number one priority. Knowing when and where each student gets on and off the school bus is vital. To assist in this safety feature, your child will be issued a school ID at the beginning of their school year. The ID is an RFID-card which each transportation eligible student will be required to have on their person at the time of bus services. Students are required to scan their ID each time they enter / exit the school bus. Your students first initial ID is at no charge, all replacements must be obtained via the school office for a fee. DO NOT PUNCH HOLES IN THE ID. This will damage the card and require purchasing a new ID. You may place the ID in a clear plastic sleeve attached to a lanyard if needed.
