Transportation & Daycare

For early childhood and elementary students requiring before- and after-school care, Lakota is proud to offer transportation to and from area daycare providers.


While this service currently extends to only those centers located within a student’s assigned attendance zone, we are expanding those parameters to accommodate students whose daycare providers now fall outside the recently revised attendance zone boundaries. By utilizing existing routes, we can accomplish this at no added cost to the district.

Many daycares also provide their own transportation to schools not serviced by Lakota busing. Parents are encouraged to contact their daycare provider for more details.


Transportation Form

Transportation for all students is based on the home address listed in our student database. To ease the transition to a new school year and honor families’ requests for alternative pick-up and drop-off locations for transportation, Lakota is asking that families submit transportation forms by Aug. 4 to receive transportation on the first day of school

Grades K-2: Early childhood schools ask that all families complete a form to have on file, even if transportation is not needed.

Grades 3-6: By default, transportation for all eligible students is based on the home address listed in Home Access Center (HAC). All alternative transportation plans are automatically cleared at the end of each school year, so please complete the form before each school year if you’ll require transportation to or from an address different than your home address.

Please honor the deadlines below to receive transportation for the upcoming school year. Note that this is for current families already enrolled at Lakota. New families enrolling will receive transportation information approximately 48 hours after registration is completed.

Bus information will be available to families in HAC beginning on Monday, July 25.

Form Submission Deadline Transportation Available

Aug. 4, 2022 First day of school

After Aug. 4, 2022 Sept. 6, 2022

After Sept. 6, 2022  All forms will be processed within 48 hours.


Please DO NOT put your child on a bus or assume that the change is in effect until you have been notified of the approval. Once approved, the Transportation Department will fax the confirmation back to your child's school and you will be notified.



Exception One Time Change of Bus or Stop

Students are assigned to ride particular buses and to be picked up and dropped off at specific bus stops. For students’ own safety and security, they may not change buses or stops without a permission slip signed by the parent and approved by the principal or designee.

This permission form must be presented to the driver of the bus the student will ride. Permission to change buses or stops will only be granted in special and unusual circumstances. Please remember that requests to ride a different bus for social reasons cannot be honored.
