ABOUT TRANSPORTATION SERVICES
Blue Valley Schools currently provides free bus transportation to students who live 2.5 or more miles from their assigned school. Mileage is figured by measuring the most direct route from the student's house to the school. Students who qualify for the federal free and reduced lunch program may be eligible to receive busing at no cost. Free bus transportation may also be available to children who qualify that are enrolled in some special education programs.
Bus transportation is available for parents who want to purchase service for children who live less than 2.5 miles from their assigned school. Information about mileage and attendance areas may be obtained from the school. You may also contact Blue Valley Schools at (913) 239-4102.
Questions or concerns about bus routes or transportation fees should be directed to Durham School Services at (913) 681-2492.
Door-to-door service will not be provided. Students are asked to walk to designated bus stops to board the bus. While Durham School Services through the district, does attempt to provide time schedules for bus stops. These schedules are a guide only, and students should be prepared for the bus to arrive 5 minutes earlier or later than what is listed. Bus stop times are subject to change. In case of severe weather, the district cannot guarantee that buses will run on schedule. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding when weather-related delays occur.
BUSING UPDATE FOR MS/HS ROUTES
As we are preparing for a return to in person learning beginning October 5th, Durham has an important message about bus routes. Families that have registered for the bus by the initial deadline should have received a letter from Durham in August with bus stop location, stop time and bus number. The letter went on to provide stop times for when the District is in Hybrid or All in School. Durham has decided to not use the Hybrid stop times and instead only use the All in School stop times regardless of what mode the District is in. If you have any questions regarding bus registration please call Durham at 913-681-2492. Note that it is best to call between 9 AM – 2 PM or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
