Bike Registration with city of boise

Each year Boise Police take nearly 400 reports on stolen bikes. Since many don’t ever file a police report, the number is much larger. To help combat the problem Boise Police has partnered with Bike Index, the most widely used and successful bike registration service in the world. By registering your bike, you are able to safely store the critical data needed for a police report. Plus if your bike is ever lost or stolen, law enforcement and the community has a better way to get it back to you. To register your bike for free, use the link below.

https://www.cityofboise.org/programs/bike-safety-and-education/bike-index/

Upon submission you will receive an email asking you to confirm your bike in the Bike Index system. Click the confirm button in the email and create an account to add additional information, pictures, or bikes.

STUDENT DROP OFF ZONE

Attention Parents & Students, the student drop off zone is in the East Parking lot.



Parents and Students will no longer be able to drop off/pickup students at the front of the School, due to continued issues with buses not being able to gain access to the bus pickup/drop off zone. Please help keep the drop off area running smoothly by pulling all the way up to the student entrance double doors near the south end of the east student parking lot.

Thank you for all your help with this matter.
