The notice sent to families about children’s school assignments also indicates if a child is eligible for transportation. In late August, if a child is eligible, the family will receive a notice with the bus stop location, time of pick-up and drop-off and bus numbers.

Kindergarten and elementary school students who ride yellow buses are picked up and dropped off at a corner stop near home. Please note that bus drivers will drop off students, including kindergartners, at the bus stop even when the parent is not there.

Students in the Lawrence Public Schools are eligible for transportation if they:
  • Are in grades K-6 and live more than two miles from school
  • Attend high school at the Lawrence High School Campus and live on the north side of the Merrimack River.
