If you are interested in signing your student(s) up for the bus for one of the best independent schools, you will need to either download the Bus Riding agreement below or come into either front office to pick up the registration packet. Payment must accompany registration. Cash or check can be paid to the front offices, and debit/credit card payments can be submitted online at www.choiceacademiespayonline.org.

Bus Stop Pick Up: Your child is expected to be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes before the scheduled pick-up time. No parents are allowed to get on the bus with their student, nor stand on the bus to hold it for a student that is running late. Once the bus driver deactivates the stop arm and starts moving the bus, the bus cannot stop. The driver cannot wait for missing students that may be running late as other stops are expecting the bus to be on time for their pickup. No eating, taking medications, suckers, chewing gum, nor any drinks except water are permitted on the bus. Snacks need to be kept in backpacks and carry-ons.
