Bus Transportation Information
Bus transportation has changed a bit for this year, so below are a few highlights.
All students are required to have their SMART tag from last year on the first day of school until they have received their new SMART tag from their campus.
If you did not select a bus when completing annual enrollment, please contact our transportation coordinator at (281) 357-3193.
If your address has changed then send a proof of residence to email@example.com so she can change the address in our online system.
Bus information will be available in the SMART tag Parent Portal to locate bus stops and approximate pick up and drop off times.
InfoFinder will be available for you to enter your child’s physical address for bus information. This will be available starting August 8th. Please use this if you do not find your bus information in the SMART tag Parent Portal.
If no bus has been assigned in the SMART tag Parent Portal yet, please use the InfoFinder to locate your bus information.
If you can’t find your bus information in SMART tag Parent Portal or InfoFinder, please contact transportation. It can take up to 10 school days to add a stop location to an existing bus route. Parents will be responsible for transportation during the 10 school days. Transportation can be reached at (281) 357-3193.
