Guidelines establishing walk zones are approved by the Centennial School Board. The guidelines adjust K–12 walk/bussing distances using established hazard criteria.
Bussing is available for high school students living more than 1.5 miles from the high school and elementary and middle schoolers living one mile or more from their school. Kindergarten students living more than 1/2 mile from their school are bussed.
All K–12 students will be mailed a postcard in late August designating bussers or walkers. The postcard will list bus stop information including time, location, bus number. Centennial has 33 bus routes for the 2012-13 school year.
- If bussing, students are to arrive at stops approximately five minutes prior to scheduled stop time. Bussed students may walk up to 1/2 mile to a stop (if the bus stop is more than 1/2 mile from your home, please call transportation at 612-789-5143).
- If walking, discuss with your child(ren) the safest route to school, taking into account traffic patterns, street crossings, sidewalks, etc. Consider walking with them the first few days of school.
