Bus Opt-In Deadline is June 17

Our transportation team is already working on its plans for next year. For increased routing efficiency, families who want their children to ride a Solon school bus next year must OPT-IN for transportation. 

The deadline to opt-in for bus transportation for the 2022-23 school year is June 17. 


All Solon students in grades K-8 and those high school students who live more than 1 mile from school are eligible to ride the bus. 

Bus stops: Students who are riding the bus will be assigned a bus stop within the distances from home noted below provided that their families opt them in for bus transportation. Due to continuing staffing challenges, these distances have been increased by up to .075 miles for students in grades K-8 to enable the district to continue providing the same level service for all families.  

Bus stop distance from home:

  • Grades K-4 = up to .175 mile

  • Grades 5-8 = up to .275 mile

  • Grades 9-12 = up to .3 mile

Pick-up and drop-off locations: Students may have only 1 stop in addition to their home in the morning and afternoon. This includes day care locations.    

Kindergarten: Parents, guardians or designated caregivers of kindergarten students must be present at the bus stop to receive their students after school (unless the student is being transported to a day care location).

Day care and/or shared parenting:  If you also need day care or shared parenting transportation, you must OPT IN by June 17 and also complete the 2022-23 Day Care/Shared Parenting Transportation Request Form. A new shared parenting form must be completed each school year. The deadline to request day care transportation is July 8. Remember, you must register for before or after school care with the provider directly.

Thank you for completing the 2022-23 Solon Schools Transportation Opt-In Form by June 17. You must submit this OPT-IN form if you want your Solon student to have a seat on the bus next year.
