We offer bus service to and from Redding each school day. The scheduled times are leave times, not arriving times. To minimize loading and travel time, please arrive at the stop five minutes early and have your children with their backpacks ready to board the bus. 

If your child rides our afternoon bus, you need to fill out and return the Afternoon Bus Dropoff Authorization form located in the Documents and Forms section.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, there are enhanced health and safety protocols for the bus. These include:

  • Bus driver will conduct visual health checks for students as they enter the bus.

  • Students will sanitize hands upon entering the bus.

  • Face coverings will be worn by the bus driver and students. The driver will ensure the bus is equipped with extra unused face coverings on school buses for students who may have inadvertently failed to bring one

  • Where possible only students from the same family, or otherwise from the same cohort, will share a seat.

  • No more than two students per seat.

  • Students will be assigned seats, ideally with downtown bus stop kids at the rear of the bus, Shasta Lanes bus stop kids in the middle, and St. James Church bus stop kids at the front of the bus.

  • When possible windows will be open on the bus to increase ventilation

  • Busses will be disinfected after each run.

  • A bus parent shall be assigned to each bus stop to help protect the safety of the students. Parents are encouraged to keep kids in their cars until the bus arrives and to have kids immediately go to their respective cars when dropped off.

  • If you missed picking up your student, you may pick up your student at the last bus stop which is at the Shasta Lanes Bowling Alley.
