The state requires school districts to provide transportation to and from school only for those students in grades K-6 who live more than 2.0 miles from school. No transportation is mandated for any students in grades 7-12. Millis will be using the state requirements for 2017-2018 and the fees will remain unchanged for the upcoming year. For those students who are not eligible for free transportation, Millis provides a Fee Bussing Program for the convenience of parents. We encourage all families to have their children ride the bus to alleviate parking and traffic problems and to be environmentally conscious.
All students who will be participating in the Millis’ transportation program for the 2017-2018 school year, including kindergarten students, must be registered by June 9, 2017. If students in the same family are fee based and free based and paying online, register all students on the online form. If there is no fee associated with the student’s registration, please mail form as directed below. PLEASE NOTE: IF PAID IN FULL BY JUNE 30, 2017, THERE WILL BE A 10% DISCOUNT OF BUSSING FEES.
THIS YEAR PAYMENT CAN BE MADE ONLINE AT : Millis Public Schools’ Home Page under the quick links section and then choose online payments or go to:
Determining the Distance from School
The distance from school is measured by the shortest traveled route from the homeowner’s driveway via a public street to the first door of the school attended.
Fee Bussing Program
The fees charged cover only a portion of the actual cost of bussing with the school district and town providing additional funds. People wishing to participate in this program must return the registration form along with a payment for 50% of the cost of round trip transportation by June 9, 2017. The remainder of the payment is due by August 4, 2017. However, if you pay in full by June 30, 2017, the 10% discount applies.
Individual bills will not be sent for the balance. Bus passes will be issued only after all fees are received. If your student is not registered by August 4, 2017, bussing may not be available for the first week of school.
For those interested in one-way transportation only, please note that this option will be available on a space available, first-come, first-served basis.
If no fee is associated with your registration, please return the appropriate form, fully completed, to Ms. MaryJane Driscoll, Transportation Director, Millis Public Schools, 245 Plain Street, Millis, and MA 02054.
