École Saint-Landry works with Saint Landry Parish Schools to provide free transportation for any student who lives more than 1 mile from the school. Transportation is managed through the use of designated satellite stops within 5 miles of a student's home. This transportation is available for all students, living anywhere within Saint Landry Parish, who choose to attend École Saint-Landry.
Parents must submit transportation requests to the school upon enrollment. Prior to the first day of school, parents are encouraged to check with the school to ensure their student(s) are appropriately tagged as bus riders.
Our satellite stops will not be at the same location each year. The stops are decided by St. Landry Parish Schools, who will operate our buses. Before the start of each school year, we will send out the information about the satellite stops and times. Sometimes you may be closer to a different stop than the one assigned to you. In that case, simply contact the school so that we may make the necessary arrangements.
Bus Satellite Locations and Times: If your child will ride the bus, click HERE for information about our satellite stops around St. Landry Parish. They are divided by area, and all satellite stops are no further than 5 miles from any child's home. You are allowed to choose any satellite stop that works for you (even if it means that you have a different afternoon stop), but once you choose, you MUST keep that satellite stop location all year unless you move or change jobs. If you need to change the stop, you will need to contact our school as well as the bus driver.
*Note: The satellite stops and times in the linked document are from the 2022-2023 school year and are subject to change. Please use this document as a reference only for choosing your bus stop. If no stop is located within 5 miles of your home, please contact us at email@example.com.
Bus Riders: Buses drop off our students at approximately 8:00AM each morning, and once they arrive, the students will go straight to their homeroom classes for breakfast. Bus riders will leave school each day between 3:45PM and 4:05PM. Between class dismissal and bus pick-up, the students are organized into groups by bus and wait in supervised classrooms.
If your child is sick or not riding the bus as usual one morning or one afternoon, please call the bus driver, whose number will be provided to you at the start of the school year. You may also call the school to get the driver’s number. This will help to avoid unnecessary travel for the bus, as well as unnecessary delays in the parent pick-up line for car riders.
If your child is usually a bus rider but you or someone else will be picking him/her up one day, you will need to call the school on that day to let us know so he/she can be moved to the car rider waiting room instead of waiting in the classrooms for the bus to arrive.
Car Riders: Car riders can begin being dropped off at 8:00AM, and they will be dismissed starting at 3:45PM. (Note: Afternoon car riders will actually leave BEFORE our bus riders.) Click HERE and read the information thoroughly, as we do NOT have a turnaround.
