Bus Passes Now Available Online
New this fall, passes for elementary and middle school students who wish to board district school buses are available at the district’s website. Look for the parent resources tab and transportation on the dropdown menu.
The site also includes school bus stops, routes and applications for district-funded passes. A round-trip annual bus pass costs $309 per child.
Bus pass applications are also accepted at the district’s office, 550 Blumont St.
Passes will be mailed to those families who apply online or in person by Aug. 16. Passes purchased afterwards will be available for pick-up at the district office a day after the application is submitted.
Questions about bus stops should be directed to Durham School Services at (949) 376-0376. School bus routes will also be published in the Indy on Friday, Aug. 30.
Applications Open for Lunch Program
A household of four, for example, which earns less than $43,568 per year, is eligible for free and reduced-price meals for children under Laguna Beach’s school lunch program.
Each of the district’s schools as well as the central office will have a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party. The policy uses household size and income criteria to determine eligibility for meal benefits.
Applications for eligibility are due by Oct. 1.
