Bus Snow Route Information

Buses #7, #11 and #12

Dear Bus Parents,

At times, due to inclement weather and poor road conditions, it will be necessary for us to run a “snow route” with some of our buses. If conditions call for this action, it will be announced by our school communications that we will be having school with snow routes only. Students on snow route buses will be picked up from and dropped off at the designated stops. Parents will need to have their students at the stop in the morning and have someone there to pick up the students at the designated times in the afternoon.

Students will not be allowed off of the bus unless a parent or other designee is there to pick them up. A note for each school year will need to be signed by the parent and building administrator and will be required if other arrangements are made. If a parent or other designee is not at the drop off point and the driver has not been made aware of other arrangements, the student will be returned to school for parent pick up.    

The following buses will be using snow routes. You can view the letter for each route below: 

Bus #7;

Bus #11;

Bus #12.

Snow route times and pickup/drop off locations for these bus routes will be established by the drivers. Parents will be notified by a letter from the driver. If your student/s do not ride on one of these buses, your bus will run its route as normal. Should you have any questions please contact me.

NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION PROCESS - FOR ALL NEW PK-12TH GRADE STUDENTS:
As a reminder, we DO NOT accept students living outside of our district.

1. Complete the Request for New Student Registration & Re-Enrollment Form
The parent/guardian will provide some general information in this online Google form

2.  Once the above form is submitted and processed by the Registrar, the parent/guardian will receive instructions, by email, for completing the New Student Registration Forms online. 

3. After submitting all required online registration forms, the parent/guardian will receive further instructions about sending copies of the required documents, via a secure program, to the Registrar. The required documents are:

  • Proof of Residency - This document must have the parent/guardian's name who is completing the registration and the current address (within our school district). Accepted examples include a current City of Strafford water bill, current electric bill, current rental agreement or current mortgage statement. 

  • Photo ID of Parent/Guardian - A copy of a drivers license or passport will be accepted.

  • Immunization Records - These must be submitted unless they will be provided with the student’s previous school records. 

  • Birth Certificate - This must be submitted unless it will be provided with the student’s previous school records.

4. Once the above steps are completed, the building office will process the online forms and send the Request for Records to the previous school (if needed). The process to receive records from a previous school can take some time, so the sooner a parent can complete this process, the better. Finally, the parent/guardian will receive a phone call from the building offices regarding completion of enrollment into our district!  

 

RE-ENROLLMENT PROCESS: 
This is for students who have previously attended Strafford Schools.

1. Parent/Guardian completes the Request for New Student Registration & Re-Enrollment Form

3. Parent/Guardian will receive instructions on providing the required documents listed below, via a secure online program:

  • Proof of Residency - This document must have the parent/guardian's name who is completing the registration and the current address (within our school district). Accepted examples include a current City of Strafford water bill, current electric bill, current rental agreement or current mortgage statement. 

  • Photo ID of Parent/Guardian - A copy of a drivers license or passport will be accepted.

  • Immunization Records - These must be submitted unless they will be provided with the student’s previous school records. 

  • Birth Certificate - This must be submitted unless it will be provided with the student’s previous school records.

The process to receive records from a previous school can take some time, so the sooner a parent can complete this process, the better. Finally, the parent/guardian will receive a phone call from the building offices regarding completion of enrollment into our district!

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • How do I know if I live in the school district?
    As a reminder, we do not enroll students who do not reside within our school district boundaries. You can click on the links provided here to view our District Boundary Map, the Greene County Assessor’s webpage or Webster County Assessor’s webpage to see what school district your residence is officially in.

  • Can I email my documents to the Registrar without submitting any forms prior?
    No, we request that parents/guardians follow the steps outlined above before emailing any required forms to the Registrar.

  • Do I need to bring any previous school records to the school for registration?
    No, you do not need to provide previous school records. There is a Request for Records Form in the online registration packet each parent/guardian will complete. The building offices will receive the records needed from the previous schools electronically. This is a requirement from district to district and protocol must be followed.

  • What is an acceptable proof of residency document?
    Acceptable proof of residency documents include a rental agreement, mortgage bill, closing documents, or a water/electric/propane bill. The bill must be in the name of the parent/guardian who is registering the student AND all documents must be current.

If you have other questions or need more clarification, please contact the Registrar, Marcy Easterly, at marcye@straffordschools.net or (417) 736-7000 ext. 1503.
