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 2016-2017 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 A student can purchase a single bus ride pass for $5.00 from the High School Office. A parent-signed bus permission slip must be presented with cash or check to receive the ticket to use the bus. It will not be possible to charge an account or credit card for this option.
