Transportation Registration Form (Complete Online)
New Prague Area Schools students entering grades K-12 must register for busing for the upcoming school year. We can optimize bus route pick up and drop off times if we know which students will actually be riding the bus. New Prague Area Schools students not registered for busing by July 15th will not be listed for bus service.
In an effort to better serve your student's transportation needs, we will no longer be mailing transportation registration forms (here) for the 2014-2015 school year. All registrations must be done online and submitted electronically. If you do not have access to the internet, you may complete a hard copy of the form at the bus garage located at 105 7th St. NW, New Prague. These will be the only requests that will be accepted; emails and phone calls are no longer an option. Please submit all transportation registrations by July 15, 2014.
Eligible students who are not pre-registered for bus service can be added to a route at any time during the school year. Please allow up to 5 business days for additions or changes to transportation schedules. Please register in a timely manner to ensure proper routing for all students.
Open enrolled students attending New Prague Area Schools will typically be offered transportation only on routes that serve resident district students. Please refer to District Policy 707 concerning walking distance; students in grades K-5 is .5 miles and students in grades 6-12 is 1 mile. This policy can be found by clicking here.
Post cards with busing information will be mailed out in late August. Please remember that your student should be at their stop at least five (5) minutes prior to the pick up time. All transportation is based on five (5) days per week.
Emergency School Closing
Due to fast changing weather conditions, it may be necessary to send the children home early. Parents should remain alert to weather conditions throughout the day when early dismissal may be possible. These closings will be announced by radio stations normally used for weather announcements.
Middle School Bus Information
Elementary School Bus Information
All elementary students are transported by bus to and from school, with the exception of those students who live .5 miles from their school and do not have to cross any designated hazards. Those students will not have bus transportation and are classified as walkers. Reference District Policy 707.
Students are not to ride bicycles or walk to or from the elementary school unless special arrangements have been made with the school by parents through the elementary school office.
All students will take their assigned bus home from school each day. Only in emergency situations are students allowed to ride different buses. Students must bring parent notes to the office by nine thirty a.m. if they are requesting a change of bus or drop off point. Parents wishing to pick their children up after school are requested to notify the school office by two o'clock p.m. so that necessary arrangements can be made.
