Regular education bus assignments are NOW AVAILABLE via the Edulog Parent Portal app and the transportation website at https://ewa.edulogweb.com/helenamt1web/webquery/.  Special education bus assignments will be made available on Monday, August 28th by the end of the day.  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 a two-step process.

Step 1
Enter your child’s profile and information. Your student’s name will be marked “approved status” when this step is completed. Please proceed to Step 2.

Step 2
Submit your student’s registration using the request tab 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 the Bus Stop Link
  2. Once you’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 student’s transportation request. We will not be able to make adjustments to our routes for temporary bus passes. Please allow 4-6 days to process your registration.
  3. Once your student’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 email transportation@helenaschools.org to inform us about the two-residence registration.

Change of address

If you’ve had a change of address, please contact your child’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. See https://helenaschools.org/departments/transportation/kindergarten-and-1st-grade-escort-and-opt-out/ for more information.
