4J Bus Routes

Where's my bus stop? |Click here |  To be eligible to ride a bus, a secondary student MUST reside one and one-half miles or more from school. All students should arrive at the bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled load time. Bus Stops: Bus-riding students are assigned a stop based on where they live. Students must use their assigned stop unless they have written permission from a parent or guardian and the school to do otherwise. Other students may be allowed to ride the bus under certain circumstances; parents should call the 4J Transportation Department at  541.790.7474. Registration: Bus-riding students must register during their first week of riding the bus. Registration is important for several reasons, but most notably so that the driver may become acquainted with students riding his or her bus.

Bus Safety

All students who ride the school bus receive training on how to behave in the bus, how to cross the road when a bus has its safety lights on, where to find emergency equipment, and how to evacuate a bus in an emergency. Schools also train other students on basic school bus safety when they ride the school bus on field trips or other activities. For more information on bus safety, or for a copy of bus safety rules and evacuation procedures, call the 4J Transportation Department at  541-790-7474.
