Students must also submit the daily attestation form. Bus assignments will not be provided until the attestation form is received.  Parents should be guided to the transportation website to apply for service ( and to submit the attestation form (  Requests made for transportation will be closed after three days if the attestation form is not received, and the parent will be notified. Students will be assigned to a bus as quickly as possible after the attestation form is received.
