Students must be registered during this period to ensure a seat on the school bus.

Bus Routes

Bus routes for the 2017-18 school year will be established based on online bus registrations received on or before Friday, June 2, 2017.   Registration will remain open, however all registrations received after June 2, 2017 at 9:00 pm PST, will be placed on a wait list until it is determined that there is a seat     available on their designated bus.

Questions about current routes? Find your bus route now!

Bus Fee Update

Due to anticipated government funding, the SD62 Board of Education has decided that bus fees for all SD62 school bus riders will not be charged for the 2017/2018 school year.

Since bussing is “free” can my child just take the bus? No. ALL riders must be registered for the school bus in the SD62 School Cash Online program.

Any student not on a driver list or without a pass may not be let on the bus.



The Saseenos PAC is excited to offer PAPA Murphy’s Pizza for the next fundraiser!!

Order forms went home last week.  Please contact the office if you would like another order form sent home with your child.

The PAC is always looking for new fundraising ideas.  If you have an idea please let us know.
