    A Pass is Required to Ride the Bus

    If your student is enrolled in a Kent School District school and you live in an eligible area, your student will be assigned a bus route and mailed a bus pass before the school year begins.

    Elementary Students

    • Elementary students are required to show their yellow bus pass daily as they enter the school bus.
    • The school office can provide a replacement bus pass if it is lost.

    Secondary Students

    • Secondary students are required to show their school ID card or yellow bus pass daily as they enter the school bus.
    • Students should keep their yellow bus pass after receiving ID cards with bus information in case their ID card is misplaced or lost.
    • The school office can provide a replacement ID card if it is lost.

    Bus Slips

    • Riding home with a friend on a temporary basis requires a written note from the parent and approval from the school office. Approval is not always possible due to some routes operating at full capacity.

    Space Available Bus Passes

    Due to our significant driver shortage and continued issues with COVID we were unable to issue Space Available bus passes for the current school year. Due to these challenges, we will be re-evaluating our ability to continue the Space Available program. Please check back for more information regarding our Space Available program on August 23rd.

    You can apply for a space available bus pass online for your student if:

    • You do not live in an area served by transportation.
    • Your home or daycare is within the approved walking distance to the nearest bus stop.
      • 1.34 miles for elementary students
      • 1.75 miles for middle school students
      • 2 miles for high school students

    Students who transfer to a non-boundary school are not eligible for a space available bus pass. Transportation for transfer students is the responsibility of the family.
    Exceptions can be made for siblings of Highly Capable (HiCap) students.

    The space available bus pass application process opens on August 23, 2022 at 8:00 AM.

    Requests for space available bus passes will be processed as quickly as possible after student load counts and route revisions are completed at the start of the school year. In past years, space available bus passes were issued during the first week of October. You will be contacted if there is space available for your student.
