Bus Route Information

Posted on: July 30, 2022

Our initial routing for the 2022-2023 school year has finished and that information has been exported from our transportation software and into the Parent Portal for you to view.  Parents can now log into Final Forms to see their child’s bus information for the coming year.  To view this information, please log in via the Online Forms portion of the Abre Parent/Student Portal and access Final Forms.  Once you click on your child’s name, you will click “Forms,” and then click on the “Transportation Information” tab.  This bus information is subject to change due to the number of students still enrolling and changes that may be made by existing students to their transportation plans for the upcoming school year.  We will send out another update to Final Forms in the days before school starts so that families have the most up to date information regarding transportation times.  Please keep in mind that these times will be a bit off the first week or so as drivers learn their new routes, stops, and student names. 

Despite the return to full capacity routes that was brought back starting last year, many of our routes are already at or very near capacity as our district’s student enrollment continues to grow.  For this reason, some of the changes between now and the start of the year may be more significant than just the couple of minute difference in pick-up or drop-off times you have likely seen past updates and instead may result in a completely different bus and time frame.  To help limit any unnecessary large changes to our initial routing, we ask that you please contact us if your child has school bus information in the Transportation tab of Final Forms, but will NOT be riding the bus this year so we have room on the routes for those that need daily transportation to and from school.  You can update your information in either the “Transportation Information” tab of Final Forms or by submitting a new Transportation Request Form found attached to this email, in any of our school offices, and also online under the “Transportation” Department tab of our district website (  These forms can be returned to SLSD District Office at 10800 Campbell Rd. or dropped off at your child’s school offices for your convenience.  Any additional change requests to this initial routing will be processed in the order that they are received but may take a few days to implement depending on the number of change requests and the number of new enrollees to the district over the coming weeks. 

While you may have heard about most districts in our area cancelling routes daily throughout last school year and thus reducing transportation services for the upcoming school year, we do not have plans to do so in SLSD at this time.  The “walk zones” for our school district are well under the 2 mile threshold established by the state of Ohio and are actually closer to just 0.5 miles from the school of attendance.  Likewise, Ohio law does not require transportation to or from any childcare providers, however, SLSD does provide transportation to and from any commercial or in-home day cares located within each elementary school’s attendance area as a convenience to both parents and the childcare providers.  Our district will also continue to allow for students to have a different bus stop in the morning than they have in the afternoon, and vice versa – though families must select just one AM or one PM bus stop to preserve as many seats as possible on the seating charts for each route.  We appreciate all of the support that the community has given to our district and hope to continue to offer these additional services for as long as our resources allow!

Enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer.  We’re excited to see everyone again and to get started with the 2022-2023 school year!
