 Transportation Request - Out of Area 2022 - 2023


A student registered at an “Out of Area” school does not qualify for transportation.   

However, consistent with previous years, a “Choice of School Transportation Request” form may be considered if there is an empty seat on the bus.  The complete terms and conditions are listed on the form.  


Choice of School Transportation Requests are processed on a “first come first serve” basis and may be submitted at this time.  STS will consider these requests after October 1, 2022.  Parents and guardians will be notified by email by SST if they are able to accommodate.


Students and their families must be prepared that transportation for out of area students will not be available for the start of the school year and that there is no guarantee of transportation.
