Open Enrollment Transportation Boundaries & Tentative Bus Stops

  •  

    The district along with Don’s Bus has determined tentative bus stops based on the survey data collected. These bus stops are subject to change as actual ridership is determined. Please view the boundary maps and maps with tentative bus stop locations. Keep in mind that kindergarten students will ride either a Fieldstone or Big Woods route. When they arrive at either Big Woods or Fieldstone Elementary, they will transfer to a bus that will take them to the Albertville Primary. All St. Michael Catholic School students will ride either a Fieldstone or Big Woods route. All high school students will ride the same routes as Middle School West students.

    Bus stops are typically placed at intersections based on your home address, student density, walk distances to the stop, safety and the timing of the route. No student will walk more than .25 of a mile to a bus stop. Buses will not cross assigned boundaries to transport students or enter cul de sacs. Students will board the bus at an assigned stop for their assigned school. Families need to establish one pick up and one drop off address for their child(ren). This is the same policy for both resident and open enrolled families.

    If you are ready to register for this service, please print and complete the Open Enrollment Transportation Registration Form. 

    If you have any questions please email transportation@stma.k12.mn.us or call 763-497-3180. Thank you for choosing STMA Schools and for your continued support of our students and the district. We look forward to partnering with you in the education of your child(ren) and continuing our tradition of excellence.
