To assist our community regarding expectations for bussing we have the following information (links are provided in each item for reference):

All parents should login to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and update their transportation form by July 1 each year. If you need additional help, transportation registration instructions can be found here.

  • Requests to change buses, stops, or update registrations filed after August 1st  may take up to three weeks for processing per Chariho Transportation Policy. Actual processing time can be as little as 3-5 days. The change request form can be found here.
  • Approved transportation requests may be rescinded after (10) consecutive days of no ridership if no reasonable explanation is made available to our transportation provider.
  • Additional bus behavior policy information is available online.
  • Should you need to speak with our main office please call (401)364-3260.
  • Should you need to speak with our transportation provider please call (401)552-7608, Ocean State Transit.
  • If you are unable to use the PowerSchool parent portal, a printable form can be found here Registration for buses and is also due by July 1 each year.  Preference is to use the PowerSchool Parent Portal, as processing time for paper forms may be 4 or more weeks..

Thank you and we look forward to an excellent school year ahead!
