Transportation


    

Updated 7/27/16


Bus routes for 2016-2017 are published below.  Families with students that are eligible for transportation to school (see eligibility guidelines below) should review the bus routes for their student’s school to find the bus number and bus stop they feel is best for them.  Copies of bus routes will also be available at each of the schools and the Administration building at 155 Apsley Street. Estimated pick up and drop off times of the first stops are listed on the published bus routes.  

Transportation Eligibility Guidelines
  • All kindergarten students living more than a ½ mile from their assigned                         school will be eligible for transportation to and from school.
  • All elementary students grades 1-4 living more than 1 mile from their assigned                   neighborhood school will be eligible for transportation to and from school.
    All middle school students grades 5-7 and high school students grades 8-12 who live        more than 1.5 miles from their schools will be eligible for transportation to and from school. For the 2016-2017 school year it has been determined that bus capacity allows busing middle school students who live more than 1 mile from school to and from school this year.
  • Students that live closer to their assigned school than outlined above are                considered walkers and are not eligible for transportation services.
  • Safety issues are taken into consideration when determining transportation            eligibility as well.
No changes will be made during the first few weeks of school as we establish our routes.  We ask for your patience at this time.


Transportation change requests can be made by sending an email request to hps.busroutes@hudson.k12.ma.us.

Excerpt for School Committee Policy - Student Transportation

Each year the Hudson Public School district reviews student enrollment and existing bus routes to ensure efficient and safe transportation for all eligible students.

Safety is a responsibility that is shared between the family and the school.  While the law requires the School Department to provide a defined level of transportation, it does not relieve parents/guardians of students from the responsibility of supervision until the student boards the bus in the morning. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure the student safely arrives at, and departs from, the bus stop.  The parent/guardian is responsible for escorting the student to and from the bus stop where there are no sidewalks, where sidewalks are only on one side, where the bus stop is on the opposite side of the street, and where there are traffic or other safety concerns.

This policy, being consistent with current state law, may require students to walk up to a mile to a bus stop.
