Background Information:
A recent King5 News story about school ventilation systems has caused some confusion, so we would like to provide you with more comprehensive information regarding our district’s ventilations systems.

One of 325 schools recognized nationwide and only Washington school awarded

Redmond, Wash. – Rosa Parks Elementary School has been named a 2021 National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. The recognition is based on a school’s overall academic performance.

    My Stop App

    Transportation has a new tool that allows you to view the estimated time of arrival for your bus. Download the Versatrans My Stop app for Apple or Android.

    GPS technology allows families to approximate the location of their school buses and the estimated time of arrival for a specific stop. (Data on the app refreshes every 5 minutes.) It is possible that your bus could arrive at the stop before the estimated arrival time because of the time it takes the system to refresh. As a reminder, buses are subject to early or late arrivals based on several factors including traffic, stop lights, inclement weather and more.

    We always encourage riders to arrive at their stop at least five minutes early to ensure getting on the bus.

    Due to the time variance on Wednesday or any early release day our bus tracking app does not work. We apologize for any inconvenience.
