How do I know if my address receives bus service?
Lakota provides transportation to all students in kindergarten and first grade. Eligible students in grades 2-6 who live more than one mile from their school will receive transportation. Eligible students in grades 7-8 will receive busing if they live more than two miles from their school. Lakota does not provide busing at the high school level. Click here to check your home address against the exclusion zones.

How do I request my student to attend a school other than the one assigned by our address?
You need to complete an Alternate School Choice Form and submit it to the Assistant Superintendent at Central Office. The form is found on our website and provides deadlines for submission.
