Transportation: Arrival & Dismissal

Transporting students in a safe and timely manner is an important part of our school district's operation. To ensure the safe transportation of our VanGorden students, please review our arrival and dismissal procedures below.

Our first priority is the safety of our students.  Please make sure your student knows each day how they will be going home.

Bus information for students can be found on Home Access Center (HAC).  If your student is being picked by anyone other than a person listed as an emergency contact in HAC, please notify the office as soon as possible in the morning. Parents can update emergency contacts in HAC at any time.

District Transportation Information

The role of Lakota's Transportation Department is to guarantee safe, efficient and cost-effective transportation of students to and from their schools.

Over the years, the district has worked with its contracted bus service company, Petermann, to regularly review bus routes in an effort to safely transport as many students as possible within the available budget.
