Message from Transportation

Dear Parent or Guardian:

The Miller Creek District School is pleased to announce we will be offering home to school bus transportation for the 2021/22 school year. School bus transportation offers families a safe, convenient and environmentally friendly way to get kids to school. Again this year we have not increased the price and we offer the following options:

• Annual Round Trip Pass

• Semester Round Trip Pass

• One-way Annual Pass (for those who want to ride either mornings only or afternoons only)

• On-line registration and payment option through SchoolPay 

• Payment Plan Option (in person at the District Office only)

We accept credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and debit cards), checks or cash for payment. Credit Card transactions will be accepted when registering and purchasing online and at the District Office between the hours of 9AM and 4:30PM. 

To process your request, download and submit your application with payment and the rules for bus rider’s signature sheet. For those unable to download or view the information on our website you may come by the District Office to pick up a packet or call 415-492-3700 to request a packet be mailed. 

To ensure your child's bus pass arrives prior to the first day of school (Thursday 8/19/2021), we ask that you complete the application either online or mail the paper form as soon as possible.  Due to limited sitting, only bus passes will be sold, bus tickets will not be available for purchase. Bus seats will be reserved on a first come first served basis.  

Again this year, we will have a bus at each elementary site on Wednesday 8/18/21 – Kindergarten Orientation Day.  Your kindergarten child will have the opportunity to board the bus, sit in seats and get familiar with the bus, so when they start riding they will feel a bit more comfortable.  Transportation for kindergarten students is available the first day of a school.

Specific health and safety protocols have been developed to transport students as safely as possible.

• Students who are ill or exhibiting symptoms should not ride the bus. 

• All drivers, adults and students are required to wear face coverings while waiting, boarding, riding or exiting the bus. 

• Students should sit forward facing.

• Students and adults should practice physical distancing while waiting at the bus stop (6 ft between adults and 3 ft between students)

• Drivers will not be using recirculated air for ventilation during the ride. Windows will be open to the maximum extent possible to bring in fresh outside air, even in cold or inclement weather. Students should dress accordingly.

• Health and safety protocols will be revised accordingly to follow the guidance set by the County of Marin Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The bus pass will be mailed to your home with the bus routes. Please be aware that some routes have changed and are subject to future changes as needed. 

If you have any questions, please call me at 415-492-3777 or send an email to mnugent@millercreeksd.org

Sincerely, 

Molly Nugent
Transportation Supervisor/Trainer
