Greetings parents of Long Beach!
This year's elementary school buses will look a little different. We will have our Pre-K students riding the bus with the elementary school students. We will be strictly enforcing assigned seating with the Pre-K students sitting in the front, followed by the Kindergarten students, then 1st through 5th grades behind them. We provide transportation to Pre-K students who live .33 miles or further from their school. Kindergarten students are entitled to transportation if the home is .5 miles from the school. With the increased ridership of the Pre-K students, we cannot extend transportation to K-5 students that live closer than .5 miles from the school.
Please also be aware that we have a bus tracking app called StopFinder. When you set up your app and geo region, the app will inform you when your child's bus is close to your stop. If you haven't already downloaded the app, please do so from your App store or your Google Play store. You must register with the same email address that you have on file with the district. If you already have been using the app last year, there is nothing more you need to do. If you need help setting up your app, please email us at LBTransportation@LBeach.org. Please be patient with us answering your emails since we will probably get inundated with questions.
Please review the bus rules with your children prior to the start of the school year. You can find the rules in the student code of conduct.
