Bus Fee Information
Because of the uncertainty surrounding the re-opening of schools, we will NOT be collecting any payment for bus registration at this time. When we have more certainty about the opening of school, we will provide payment information, including invoices, payment plan options and financial aid. However, we do encourage you to register your student(s) for the bus by July 15th so as to help us plan for bus ridership in the fall. Please follow this link to register.
*Special note for families with rising 7th graders: Our student information database has not yet rolled students to the next year. When you log on to the bus registration system, it will show last year's grade level ('19-'20 school year.) If your student is going into 7th grade, you are no longer eligible for a fee waiver based upon your distance from the school (as you were in 6th grade.) All students in grades 7-12 pay a bus fee.
Riding the bus is a safe and efficient way for your child to go to and from school. To encourage bus ridership, NPS aims to keep the bus fee reasonable for families. K-5 students, regardless of distance from their school, ride the bus free of charge. A fee of $350, with a family cap of $700, is paid by all other students.* (see 6th grade note below.)
Key points of information:
- K-5th grade students – all students in grades K-5 do NOT pay a bus fee
- 6th grade students – if you reside LESS than 2 miles from the school, you pay a fee of $350. If you reside MORE than 2 miles from the school, you do NOT pay a fee.
- 7th – 12th grade students – all students in grades 7-12 pay the fee of $350 to ride the bus

There is a family cap of $700. This means that every family, no matter how many students, pays no more than $700 each year to utilize bus transportation.
Payment will be submitted at the time of registration through our online registration process. The online registration will be live on June 15, 2020.
Families may apply for a fee waiver based on financial hardship so that no student is denied bus transportation. To apply, please fill out the financial assistance application.
