Transportation

 

 

Parents:

With winter weather returning this week, we may have bus delays. The HSD Transportation Department will make every effort to keep parents informed about any such delays.

All bus notifications are sent to the email address you have on file with your child’s school. If you are signed up for SMS notifications, those are sent as well.

If you are not receiving notifications from the HSD Transportation Department, please contact your child’s school to make sure your information is up to date and that you are signed up to receive these notifications.

All notifications are also updated on our webpage (https://helenaschools.org/departments/transportation/) and on the HSD Transportation Department Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/HSD1Transportation/).

Buses are experiencing minor delays with icy road conditions. Please allow 15 minutes past drop off times before you call to check on bus locations.
With winter weather conditions, buses may be running late.
Please do not leave your child unattended at their bus stop.
Your child’s safety is a priority with the Helena Public Schools.
