BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If you don’t register your child to ride the school bus, your child will not be riding the school bus. That’s the message from the Palm Beach County School District as summer is rapidly coming to an end for public school students.
The new school year starts in just a month, following a very short seven week summer.
School District officials, still working through COVID best practices, need to know now who is taking the school bus. If parents do not register, children will likely not be permitted to board the bus.
This is the official announcement from the Palm Beach County School District:
The School District of Palm Beach County requires that all students who will be using bus transportation for the 2021-2022 school year register with the Transportation Department.
The Register Your Ride portal will open on Monday, July 12. Parents and guardians must complete a brief registration to ensure their child is assigned to a bus. The child must have a student ID to use when registering.
Registration must be completed by Sunday, July 25 or there may be a delay in assigning bus transportation. Students who do not register will not be permitted to use the school bus until registration is complete.
Choice program students can receive transportation regardless of their proximity to the Choice school. Parents must provide transportation to the closest bus stop in order to be eligible.
Bus stops will only be available within the Choice Transportation Zone for each school, and additional stops will not be created. Visit the Choice Transportation Zones webpage to select the relevant school and view maps.
Facial coverings are optional on school buses for the 2021-2022 school year, and social distancing is encouraged at bus stops.
