    $16 per ride
    Bus passes can be purchased for morning, afternoon, or late activity buses for $16 per one-way trip by students who do not regularly use LJCDS’ transportation services.

Late Activity Signup

The late activity transportation option serves every regular stop. Vehicles leave Monday–Friday at 5:45 p.m. from the Middle School parking lot pickup/drop-off zone. 

Each student or parent is responsible for signing up for late activity on the sign-up calendar between 6 a.m.–2:45 p.m. every day that it's needed. Requests after 2:45 p.m. will not be accepted due to driver scheduling constraints. In the event that a student misses the 2:45 p.m. sign-up, the student's parents/guardians will need to retrieve them from school that day.

Arrival times depend on students signing up for each stop that day. This number may fluctuate daily. If there are no students for a scheduled stop, travel times will be decreased and students will get to their stop earlier. It is illegal for drivers to use cell phones (even hands-free) unless the vehicle is pulled over and turned off. However, each driver does have a cell phone available for emergencies and for passengers to use, if they would like to inform their parents/guardians of their ETA.
Afternoon buses depart Monday through Friday at 3:30 p.m.
Late activity vehicles depart Monday through Friday at 5:45 p.m.

Any student not met by an approved adult at their corresponding bus stop without written prior authorization will be brought back to school and placed into after-school care for pickup. After-school care closes at 5:30 p.m.

After-School Care locations:
  • ECC: ECC classrooms
  • Kindergarten: Kindergarten playground (LS1 or LS4 in inclement weather) 
  • Lower School: Lower School playground (LS9 music room) 
  • Middle School: Lower School playground (LS9 Lower School music room or MS 102)
