For bus delays and potential cancelation of routes, please follow our Facebook page and your Parent Portal application.Ā 

Bus registration for the 2024-2025 school year will open on Friday, May 24 @5 pm. Please do not submit your registration before that.

Please see the instructions below to register your student for bus service using the Edulog Parent Portal.

Important Edulog parent portal information

Please note that registration in the Edulog parent portal app is aĀ two-step process.

Step 1
Enter your childā€™s profile and information. Your studentā€™s name will be marked ā€œapproved statusā€ when this step is completed. Please proceed to Step 2.

Step 2
Submit your studentā€™s registration using theĀ request tabĀ in the lower right-hand corner.

If your student is registered to ride the bus (and is eligible for transportation), but their status is still pending when school starts, you can still have them ride the bus by following a few simple steps:

  1. Find the closest available stop via theĀ Bus Stop Link
  2. Once youā€™ve located the closest available bus stop, contact your student’s school to request a temporary one-day bus pass. You will need to ask the school to issue this pass each day until we can process your studentā€™s transportation request. We will not be able to make adjustments to our routes for temporary bus passes.Ā Please allow 4-6 days to process your registration.
  3. Once your studentā€™s registration is processed, their bus assignment will appear in the Edulog portal within one business day. Your student will then be issued a bus card by their bus driver.

Two residences

If your child lives in two residences, a registration form must be submitted for each location. Please follow up with a message in your registration stating that your student has two residences. You can also emailĀ transportation@helenaschools.orgĀ to inform us about the two-residence registration.

Change of address

If youā€™ve had a change of address, please contact your childā€™s school first so they can enter the change into PowerSchool before registering for bus service. We will not be able to process your registration until PowerSchool has been updated with your new address.

Please visit our website for information on using the Edulog parent portal app.

Bus card & fee program

All students who are registered for bus service will receive a free bus swipe card for the 2022-23 school year. Bus passes will be distributed by bus drivers the first week of school. We will provide one free replacement card if a student loses their issued bus card. All replacement cards after your student’s second issued card will have a $5 replacement fee.

Kindergarten & first grade opt-in program

The opt-in program for kindergarten, 1st grade, and SPED students is available. SeeĀ https://helenaschools.org/departments/transportation/kindergarten-and-1st-grade-escort-and-opt-out/Ā for more information.
