For many in SW Michigan students from elementary to college are headed back to classrooms for the start of the 2015-2015 calendar school year. Many residents and business owners welcome new and returning students and professionals to Kalamazoo.
KPS offers bus transportation to students in grades K-5 who live at least a mile from their elementary school and to students in grades 6-12 who live at least a mile and a half from their middle or high school.
Drivers will also want to take a little extra time getting to their destinations as traffic from school buses and other drivers take to the roads Monday morning.
The district does not transport students who are attending a school outside their boundary area, unless it is a magnet school.
Families who qualify for bus transportation and have not received a letter, and families who have moved, should notify the child’s school and the KPS Transportation Department at 269-337-0500.
