Many of our local communities provide busing to St. Paul Westlake for students who reside in their district. Before the start of the school year, parents need to make arrangements with their local school system’s transportation department to have their children bused to St. Paul. Parents in communities that do not provide busing should contact their local school district to determine if busing or transportation reimbursements are available to them.
Students using these school bus services must abide by all rules and policies of their district as well as follow any instructions given by bus drivers.
By law, buses operated by public school systems can only transport those children who live within their respective communities.
After-School Pick-Up Guidelines
Students are released from school at 3:20 p.m. Parents should refrain from lining up to pick up their children until 3:05 p.m. Students in grades K-8 will be picked up by parents at the back entrance of the East Drive. Parents should NOT park in the front and come into the building to pickup their child, as the front parking lot is used for students leaving by bus transportation. Traffic flow maps are distributed through the school office at the beginning of the school year.
