The Des Plaines Police Department has worked with each school and its neighbors to implement a traffic flow plan. The success of this plan depends on the willingness of parents to adhere to signs and follow traffic laws.
As many schools are located in residential areas, morning arrivals and afternoon dismissals bring congestion to our smaller streets. Double parking, sign violations, blocking crosswalks and driveways all impede the flow of traffic and create a dangerous situation for our children.
The Des Plaines Police Department is dedicated to traffic safety around our schools. During the pick-up and drop-off time traffic sergeants will be monitoring traffic flow until school is dismissed for the summer.
Parents who drive their children to school are asked to obey all traffic regulations. Please contact the Des Plaines Police Department at (847) 391-6129 with suggestions or comments.
For assistance with crossing guards, please contact the Des Plaines Police Department at (847) 391-5408.
The balanced fee per rider is $300.00. Please see the Transportation Fee Analysis below.
All students must follow the District’s School Bus Safety Rules.
Failure to do so can result in suspension of bus privileges and/or other consequences based on the nature of the offense per School Board Policy 7:220 and the Student Parent Handbook.
ALL school rules apply to bus riders. In additions, bus riders must adhere to the following:
Change of Address/Telephone
In the event a family moves or has a telephone number change, it is important that they notify the school office as soon as possible. Please note, change in pick up is not immediate.
Changes in routing take at least three business days to process. In some instances, more time may be required depending on circumstances.
Temporary Change of Bus Stop/Address
Drivers may not change established bus stops or routes without authorization from the Transportation Services Department.
