Transportation

Life Christian offers transportation to the areas listed below. Families who plan to use the bus on a regular basis should fill out a Transportation Commitment Form and file it with the school office. Transportation rates and plans for the 2017-18 school year are as follows:

Full Ridership Families will be charged $165.00 per calendar month that a student wishes to ride the bus. If a family will have more than one student riding the bus, the monthly charge for the entire family will be $215.00. This option is available on a monthly basis (September through May) and will be charged to your student’s account. If your student rides any part of the month, the monthly charge will be incurred.

Half-Time Ridership This option is available to families whose students are involved in after-school programs and who are only riding one way. The monthly rate for this option is $100.00 per calendar month that the student is involved in our after-school programs. This option is available on a seasonal basis (fall, winter, spring), and will be charged to your student’s account. At the end of his/her activity season, this option will revert back to Full Ridership, and be charged out at the full ridership fee of $165.00 per month.

Per-Ride Charge This will be billed from the Bus Drivers Monthly list, and charged on statement, and it will be a $5.00 per ride charge.  A parent-signed bus permission slip must be on file with the school office.
