Updated March 25, 2021

In an effort to continue to focus on providing safe transportation for all students and staff, bus registration is required for all eligible students.  There is no fee charged.  If your transportation needs change, please contact your school directly.  Please find the Bus Registration link to complete the registration form.  As of February 11, 2021, there are no longer distancing requirements on school buses. With more students riding bus starting in April 2021, we will continue to maximize distancing through assigned seats and based on the number of students.   Therefore, bus assignments can change at any time.

Note:   Returning to school 4/5/2021; Students who already have a bus pass for cohort days can use their bus pass for all five days.  If your student was remote and you would like to request a bus pass, please complete the bus registration form and send it to the main office at your school.  All students should show their bus pass to the bus driver and PLEASE sit in their assigned seat If a student does not have a bus pass, they should state their name to the bus driver upon entering the bus.  Students should only ride the bus for which they are assigned.

Based on DESE and health department guidance, we will continue to enforce the following:          BUS RULES:


   * Students are required to wear their mask and stay seated in their              assigned seat throughout the entire bus ride.
  * Students are encouraged to keep an extra mask in their back pack.
  * Students should not lean over the seat or into the aisles.
  * Students should sit in the same seat every day as assigned by the            bus driver.   Siblings will need to sit together.
  * Kindergarten students are being assigned to sit in the front rows.
  * Windows will be open (2 inches or more) for ventilation (unless                   severe weather); please dress accordingly.
  * High touch areas will be disinfected between routes and buses will             be fully disinfected daily.
 
                                    
Transportation Eligibility Guidelines

  • All Students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 living more than one mile from their assigned school.
  • 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.

Families with students that are eligible for transportation should review the bus routes for their student's school. Copies of bus routes will be available at each of the schools and the Administration building at 155 Apsley Street.

Any questions, please contact your student's school directly. No changes to bus stops will be made during the first few weeks of school.

Additional Information

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
