District to Offer Shuttle Bus from Northwood to Primary Schools

School Bus

 

**UPDATE** Now open to ANY NORTHWOOD STUDENT going to the primary schools - A PARENT/GUARDIAN MUST COMPLETE THE FORM LINKED BELOW. Your child will not ride until they receive confirmation from the school. Shuttle service to those recently confirmed who do not have a sibling at either primary school will begin Monday, November 11. 

 

In an effort to help out parents picking up siblings at more than one school, the district will now be offering an afternoon-only shuttle bus service from Northwood Intermediate to Emerson and Longfellow Primary. 

 

Service will begin Monday, November 4 for siblings who have already been confirmed to ride. Other students without siblings at the primary will need to complete the linked form below; if space is available, students will receive confirmation from the school and those students without siblings will begin on the shuttle Monday, November 11. Students taking advantage of the shuttle bus can either be picked up at the primary schools or may walk home.  

 

There are some very important stipulations:

  • Riding the shuttle bus is a privilege. Any misbehavior on the bus or on the premises at Emerson or Longfellow may result in this privilege being taken away. 
  • If you would like your child to ride the shuttle bus they must do so every day (emergencies/illnesses excluded). If your child’s dismissal changes, please notify the school in advance.
  • There is a limited number of available bus seats. We will fill the seats on a first-come-first-serve basis. 
  • As of November 4, there are still seats available. These seats will now be opened up to others who would like to utilize the shuttle bus to the primary schools. Those who have not yet been confirmed to ride will not start on the shuttle until November 11.  

 

We are hoping this will help parents with multiple pick-ups and alleviate some of the traffic congestion at Northwood as we continue to improve the traffic flow. We are asking that you please be patient and please be courteous to all of the Northwood neighbors.

 

Any questions or concerns please contact the Northwood office at (937)497-2231.
