Transportation to & from School for 2021-2022 School Year
We have a new process for requesting school bus transportation for the 2021/2022 school year. All families must go to OneView (https://beavercreek.esvportal.com) and fill out the Transportation section for next year. Please fill out this information before the last day of school, May 28, 2021.
Even if you do not intend on using school transportation, we ask that you go into OneView and give us this information for each child. We will be building school bus routes based on the needs of each child.
If your child will need a bus for next year we want to make sure that your child is routed. School bus transportation will only be scheduled for those families who request this service, all students will not automatically be routed.
- If your student uses special transportation, or will be a preschool student, the process does not change (do not fill out this form).
- If your child is in a shared parenting scenario please keep in mind that shared parenting and daycare transportation services will only be provided within the school boundary of attendance.
- If your needs change before school starts, or in the middle of the school year, we can still make changes with advanced notification to the Transportation Office.

We are so excited to share a project we have been working on since spring break. The project was a collaboration of Main PTO, Character Education (Mrs. Rice) and Art (Miss Hathaway). We focused on the book “The One and Only You,” which Mrs. Rice read to the students during their monthly character education lesson. While in art class each student painted his or her rock their respective grade level color one week and the following week drew their “fish” on the painted rock with paint pens. The staff also joined in on this fun as well! All of the rocks were sprayed with a protective coating and placed around the playground water fountain. The kiddos did amazing with this project and the result is unbelievable! Make sure to check it out!!! What a great project to close out this unique year and help add some beautiful color to our school.
Thank you Miss Hathaway for helping to organize this project.
A BIG thank you goes out to Larry Phillips and Phillips Sand & Gravel for donating the rocks to Main. We are so grateful for their support of Main and its students in this wonderful project!
