General Information

The Westby Area School District Transportation department will provide transportation to all eligible students who reside within the school district and live two miles or more from the nearest school they are entitled to attend. We are also obligated to provide transportation to some students who live in an area declared hazardous by the County Sheriff that live within two miles or less from the nearest school they are entitled to attend. Buses will travel only within the District’s boundary.

The District will offer transportation to all Four-Year Old Kindergartner's at noon upon request from the parents. Door-to-door transportation will be provided to students who live in the City of Westby and the Village of Coon Valley. Every effort will be made to transport Kindergarten students on a door-to-door basis and under most circumstances the school bus will attempt to pick-up students as close to their home as possible. However, older students will be expected to walk home a longer distance if the weather permits and if it appears to be a practical situation.

Parents requesting transportation to a childcare provider should fill out the child care provider form. Forms may be obtained from the Elementary School Secretaries. Buses will travel only in the District’s boundary and attendance areas.

In all cases where a school bus is driving onto private property to pick-up or drop-off children, an appropriate turn around must be provided. The area must be free of equipment or vehicles that interfere with the Bus Driver’s operation of the bus. Also, under no circumstances will a school bus cross a private bridge or a bridge considered to be unsafe. In the event of a problem, the Transportation Supervisor will contact the parents and specify the necessary conditions. If the conditions are not met, the buses will not pick-up or drop-off students in that area.
