NSSD 112 Transportation
NSSD 112 is committed to providing, safe, efficient, and reliable transportation to our students. The District has a partnership with First Student Transportation to provide bus service to students. Other services related to transporting students to and from school, including students with special needs, are also provided within the District.
Who to Call With Questions
Parents who have a bus problem that needs immediate attention should call First Student at 847-724-7481. Call First Student with questions related to a bus running late, complaints or compliments about a driver, or general bus operations. Other questions, including changing a bus stop, eligibility for transportation services, school boundaries and district policies and procedures related to transportation should be directed to the transportation department at 224-765-3011.
Out of an abundance of caution, bus route information for the incoming school year is generally mailed to parents in August.
When Buses are Late
If routes are running late, every effort is made to notify parents and guardians by phone through the District's communications system. Parents are asked to please notify their child's school office with any changes in contact information.
Eligibility and Fees
The District provides free bus transportation to all K-8 students who reside 1.5 miles or more from their assigned schools, or who who reside less than 1.5 miles from their assigned school where walking to school would constitute a serious hazard as determined by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Students who are not eligible for free transportation may be allowed to ride the bus on a space available basis. The transportation fee is $495 for the school year.
