 Transportation Changes Policy

It is our goal to ensure that all Nickajack students are transported safely to their afternoon destination. To achieve this goal, any change to your child's afternoon transportation must be submitted in writing to our front office staff.  We will not accept any verbal requests on the phone or any requests sent via email.

We ask parents to make all transportation changes clear to the student before they leave home in the morning.  Parents should send a note with the change information (see below) with the student.

However, there are times when a change is necessary after the instructional day has begun.  In these instances the request must be in writing and faxed to the school no later than 1:30 p.m. on the day of the change.

Required Information:    Transportation Change Form

  • Student's name

  • Teacher's name

  • Date(s) the change will be effective

  • Identify the new mode of transportation

  • Parent's name (printed)

  • Parent's signature

  • Parent contact information - i.e. cell phone number, email, etc.

  • Please call to verify that your fax was received. 
  • Do not send transportation changes to the teachers via email.

Bus Updates

Stay informed about issues your child's bus may be experiencing - i.e., bus will be late, substitute bus, or other emergency situations - click on the bus below to receive Bus Codes and text updates.


The safety and security of our students is our number one priority. 

We will continue to assess and evaluate our security policies and procedures and to make any adjustments necessary to ensure the safety of our students. 

Attched to the image above is a letter outlining changes we made during the 2016-2017 school year.  If  more changes become necessary parents will be notified.

Thank you for your understanding and doing your part to keep us safe!


 2017-2018

Nickajack has added two 1st grade classes to our Dual Language English/Spanish Immersion program!  Last year's Kindergartners will move up to 1st grade and we will welcome our second group of Kindergarten students to the program.  This unique model provides instruction and support for students in learning both languages.  Students will split their day between instruction in Spanish and English. 

  • We will continue to grow this program each year through Grade 5.

  • We will instill cultural competence and enhance communication among our students and community. 

  • Our vision and mission is to develop and honor the greatness in everyone and help every child to become a leader. 

  • Our Dual Language English/Spanish Immersion program will help students to become bi-lingual and bi-literate in an ever changing world.
