Busing and Transportation

According to Section 121.54(2), Wisconsin Statutes, a pupil attending a public elementary or secondary school, including kindergarten, is entitled to transportation by the public school district in which the pupil resides if the pupil resides two or more miles from the nearest public school the pupil is entitled to attend. In addition, Section 121.54 (1), Wis. Stats., provides that districts are not required to transport pupils who reside in the same city as the school they attend unless the pick up point is deemed hazardous for stopping the bus or for foot traffic.

Chilton Public School District provides bus transportation for students meeting the state defined criteria for distance, city residence and unusually hazardous transportation areas. The bus schedule and route information is available by contacting Daun Bus Services at (920) 898-4207 after August 15th.

Students will ride only assigned school buses and will board and depart from the bus at assigned bus stops. Students will not be permitted to ride unassigned buses for any reason other than an emergency or prearranged change approved by the principal.

A change in a student's regular assigned bus stop may be granted for a special need, if a note from a parent is submitted to the building principal stating the reason for the request, the duration of the change, and the principal's approval.

Bus Safety Tips

Welcome back to a new year! The safe transportation of your children is of the utmost importance to our company. To assist our drivers and us in providing the safest ride to and from school, please review the following items with your children:

  • Always wait on the side of the road until the bus is at a complete stop.
  • Always wait for the bus driver's hand signal before you cross the road.
  • Stay seated at all times
  • Sit facing the front of the bus
  • Keep your voice at a low level so that you are not a distraction to the driver or other riders
  • Show respect for other students at all times
  • Obey the bus driver at all times - this will decrease driving distractions
  • Elementary school students must ride in the front of the bus
  • Middle school students must ride in the middle of the bus
  • High school students ride in the back of the bus

Studies have shown that the majority of bus-related injuries to children occur outside of the bus. Please emphasize the importance of having your child wait for the bus driver's hand signal to cross the road to protect him/her from illegal passing motorists.

Daun Bus Services have been providing transportation for the Chilton School District since 1962 and with your support, we look forward to providing the safest ride in the 2008-2009 school year!
