Parents will need to register for a Parent Portal Account through EZRouting or on the BusQuest.
Just search for the BusQuest application on your cell phone, IOS or Android. You can submit
transportation requests, address changes to transportation and contact information. Parents will be
able to see their students busing information no later than August 28th, 2020.
Transportation WILL NOT be sending postcards out this year. We’ll notify you when bus schedules
are available. You can view assignments in your portal or BusQuest.
We encourage parents to monitor the portal and their email. Transportation is subject to change as
information and guidelines are received from the state.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the Transportation Department!

Bus & Location
Michigan Secretary of State Traffic Laws: What Every Driver Must Know Regarding School Busses
Use extra care around busses and in school zones. Children are small and hard to see and may dart into the street or out from around parked vehicles.
Never drive around a school bus with its red overhead lights flashing; it is picking up or dropping off passengers. It is not necessary to stop for a school bus stopped on the other side of a divided highway, where the road is separated by a barrier such as a concrete or grass median, island or other structures that separate the flow of traffic (see image below).
Fines for failing to stop for a school bus are double what would normally be assessed for a moving violation. Increased fines and imprisonment may result for violations resulting in injury or death.
Know Your School Bus Signals!
When the YELLOW hazard
When the YELLOW overhead
When the RED overhead lights are flashing, stop at least 20 feet from the school bus. Remain stopped until the flashing red lights are turned off or the bus resumes its travels.
