Sheboygan Area School District Transportation

Sheboygan Area School District provides yellow school bus transportation to students that live within eligible transportation boundaries within the district. For the safety of themselves and others, it is important that students observe the bus rules. Parents are encouraged to review safe bus conduct with students and to contact school officials about any problems with school bus transportation. Home/school cooperation is important in providing safe, efficient transportation for all students.

Bus eligible families should complete the Skyward family access online form to accept or decline bus transportation for 2021-22 school year between August 2-15th during SASD registration. If you do not need yellow bus to start school but a later date, then decline transportation, wait and request busing through your child’s school secretary. Please note we need at least two school day’s notice to complete your bus request.

Bus requests and bus stop changes need to be received by Friday, August 13th for the change to be effective on the first day of school busing.

Private School students who signed up for busing will be mailed home a confirmation letter by July 30th.

If you have no computer access or your child will be enrolling for the first time at a bus eligible school and will need to ride a bus please call 920-459-3569 or email transportation-services@sasd.net to request busing.

Approximate bus pick up and drop off times will be available at https://www.sheboygan.k12.wi.us/families/transportation/bus-routes at the end of August.

Prigge’s phone number is 459-2961.

All district students may ride Shoreline Metro city bus free for any reason. For more information on routes, please visit www.shorelinemetro.com or call 920-459-3281.

The Sheboygan Area School District and the City of Sheboygan are pleased to announce that starting July 1, 2018, all District students will be able to ride city buses for free. On June 22, 2018, the Board of Education approved a contract with the City that greatly increases student access to transportation.

The contract will enable the District to provide transportation for more students to and from school using city buses. In addition, all students may ride the bus for any reason for free, such as to go to work, visit the public library, or access programming at other District schools.

  • SASD middle school and high school students will be required to show a school or district-issued ID to qualify for the free fare. If your school does not offer a school ID, general SASD student IDs will be available at school offices to be used for free fares. During the school year, students that forget their ID or do not have an ID will be required to pay the case fare – no exceptions.
  • SASD elementary school students will not be required to show an ID. Elementary students will simply be allowed to board at no cost.
  • Over the summer, no IDs are required by students to ride at no cost.
  • SASD staff members will be required to show a school or district-issued ID to qualify for the free fare.

For more information on student fares, routes, trip planning, and service information, please visit www.shorelinemetro.com.  Shoreline Metro's phone number is 459-3281.

Please be aware that Shoreline Metro is currently requiring all passengers to wear a face covering.

Students can be denied services under Shoreline Metro's Conduct Policy and Exclusion Policy.  Shoreline Metro works with SASD to resolve students conduct issues, but if conduct becomes a concern for other passengers, suspending use of Shoreline Metro may be necessary.  Please visit their website for more information on this and all Shoreline Metro policies.

If your child leaves an item on the bus, please directly contact Prigge Bus Company at 459-2961. Please provide a description of what was left on the bus. The dispatcher will then check with the driver and advise if the item was found and how to reclaim it.

Only one pick-up point and one drop-off point per student is permitted. Pick-up and/or drop-off point may be a home or daycare within the school boundary. A bus stop location may be up to a half mile walking distance from home/daycare.  In order to shorten the time on the bus, their may be more group stops or a further walk to/from stop location.

Please contact your school office for permanent address changes.

For all school bus riders, the parent/guardian is responsible for contacting Prigge's Bus Company in the event your child will not be riding the bus on any given day (due to illness, vacation, doctor appointment, etc.)

Prigge's phone number is 459-2961.

If your child does not ride the bus for three consecutive days, and you have not contacted the bus company during that time, transportation will be terminated. You will need to contact your child’s school secretary to reinstate transportation, which will go into effect a minimum of two (2) working days after you contact the secretary.

Parents are expected to provide other transportation to school for students suspended from the privilege of bus use due to misconduct.

How does school choice affect transportation services?
