This information will be used to create a preliminary route for the first four weeks of classes, from September 3rd to September 27th. Seats will be filled on a first-come-first-booked basis. Please assume that both buses will be full this year and sign up for the School Bus as early as possible in order to reserve spots.

Changes in Transportation Route

Formal requests for permanent changes in transportation services are required after Friday, September 20th. If there is no formal change request submitted, Leahurst Transportation will only provide services on the initial days chosen, with no exceptions. We will do our best to accommodate these changes to but we cannot guarantee that all requests will be approved. A formal request for permanent changes in transportation services after Friday, September 20th that is approved will require an administration fee.

Administration Fee

There will be a $50 administration fee charged to those who wish to make permanent changes to their child’s transportation route after Friday, September 20th. This administration fee covers the cost of processing a change request, communicating with bus drivers and permanently altering the Leahurst bus schedule.

Refunds

Refunds will be granted if changes in transportation services are required due to changes in a students’ timetable or courses. This could include rowing before school, or afterschool Leahurst sport, activity or club. Refunds will not be granted if changes in transportation services are required due to changes in personal activities outside of school.
