Overview of Transportation Services at SAS
SAS contracts with an independent bus company to provide bus transportation for SAS students. The bus service is entirely optional and is provided based on mutual agreement. SAS buses currently service around 2500
students on a daily routine and each route is designed based on safety and efficient travel time.
SAS Bus Services is provided based on a point-to-point (not door-to-door) pick-up and drop-off location. To ensure a comfortable and effective bus service for majority bus riders, SAS may not be able to provide the bus service to families who reside in remote and/or extreme distant locations. They may be requested to arrange their own transport or to travel to the nearest SAS existing bus stop point. In order to service the majority of families attending SAS, bus routes and/or pick-up time may change each year in order to meet the needs of all families. Please consult with the transportation department annually to confirm routes.
Activity buses are available for students in grades three and above who participate in after-school activities. The activity buses provide service to several pre-determined drop-off locations. Please check with each campus’ respective Bus Office/Activity Dept for more details

Parents must click on the Icon for Transportation, read the instructions and agree to the Waiver/ Indemnity and transportation rules for each child(ren). Parents can easily switch between children to complete this process for each one. Please make sure your address and contact information is correct before finalizing the transportation registration. At any time you can make changes to your contact information under the Demographic Update Icon in PowerSchool. It will take 24 to 48 hours for the changes to be confirmed by the Office of Admission.
Once you have completed the registration process online and submitted it,the SAS Bus Coordinator will contact you via email with all bus information including the assigned bus number, bus operator’s contact information and the pick-up and drop-off information.
