The district assigns a student to attend a neighborhood school based on their address. To find out what your neighborhood school is and whether or not your student qualifies for bus service, you can check our online system.
Route information for the 2012-13 school year has been updated in the School & Bus Finder but it is always subject to change.
The website will list what neighborhood school your student will attend, whether or not your child will have bus transportation, and if so, when and where to catch the bus. It will also note when and where your child will be dropped off in the afternoon. Bus routes, stops and times are subject to change. It is recommended that you use this system to check route information from time to time. Bus route schedules are also available for downloading as PDFs.
If you live outside a one-mile radius from your child’s neighborhood school, you will receive a postcard in the mail each year, before school begins, listing the bus information for your student(s). This postcard contains the route number; bus stop location; and time of pick up and drop off. If you did not receive a postcard or would like to confirm the information, you can look it up online, by using the above links.
Please note that bus transportation is funded by the state of Washington only for students who live outside the one-mile radius. Students may have more than one mile to travel to school by roads or walking routes but still live inside the one-mile radius. Exceptions are made only for situations where no safe walking route is available.
If you have a question about a bus stop, contact the Transportation Department at (425) 936-1120 or BusRoutes@lwsd.org. Calls and emails are answered in the order in which they are received. The Transportation Department does receive a very high volume of calls at the beginning of the school year; we appreciate your patience as we respond as quickly as possible.
