The Oconto Unified School District contracts with Kobussen Buses, Ltd, for transportation services for our district transportation annual needs. We thank Kobussesn for their positive partnership. We trust them in establishing bus routes and paying close attention to all our student’s transportation needs in a safe and consistent manner.
Per our policy students are eligible to receive transportation if they live two or more miles from their attendance area school, or from our busing shuttles from Oconto Middle School. Further, a residence that falls within an area that the school district has deemed to be "unusually hazardous" would qualify for transportation. Knowing this we want to provide the best service to all our students.
Parents of students who live less than two miles from school and are in an area not considered hazardous are responsible for transportation. The School District and Kobussen have developed several in-city bussing options that would provide an option for these students and families that reside in these "unusually hazardous" areas. The in-city bussing options, which are listed below, can be utilized by families that deem it a good option for their family. However, all bus riders should fill out a transportation form. This form and more transportation information can be given to you from your school or found in the Transportation section on the OUSD website - www.oconto.k12.wi.us. Forms can be returned to Brenda Walkowiak at the District Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
