Transportation Announcements

Postcards with bus route information for the upcoming 2018-19 school year  will be mailed on Friday, August 2, 2018. If you had a change of address over the summer, it would be very important to get this updated BEFORE the mailing to avoid any disruptions in transportation services. All changes or corrections can take UP TO 10 (ten) days at the start of the school year. 

If you have access to Skyward, all routes are posted in Skyward under family access & updated daily. At the start of school, several changes are made to routes so it is advised to check this data daily for at least the first two weeks of school to be sure you have the most up to date route information.

If you use a daycare provider and need transportation from another location other than your home address, it would be very important to get the proper paperwork completed BEFORE the mailing as well. These forms can be printed from our district website or picked up at any of the school buildings as well as the District office at 901 S 4th Street, DeKalb. 

If you have any transportation questions or concerns, please email Brenda Jergens @ or call directly at 815-754-2199.
