Transportation Registration Form (Complete Online)

Dear Parents/Guardians:

New Prague Area Schools students entering grades K-12 must register for busing for the upcoming school year. We can optimize bus route pick up and drop off times if we know which students will actually be riding the bus. New Prague Area Schools students not registered for busing by July 15th will not be listed for bus service.

If your student will require school bus transportation for the coming year, please fill out the form COMPLETELY and send to New Prague Area Schools Transportation Dept. via fax: 952-758-1489; e-mail: or ; mail or drop it off at the bus garage at 105 7th St. NE, New Prague, MN 56071 by July 15th.

Eligible students who are not pre-registered for bus service can be added to a route at any time during the school year. Please allow up to 5 business days for additions or changes to transportation schedules. Please register in a timely manner to ensure proper routing for all students.

Open enrolled students attending New Prague Area Schools will typically be offered transportation only on routes that serve resident district students. Please refer to District Policy 707 concerning walking distance; students in grades K-5 is .5 miles and students in grades 6-12 is 1 mile. This policy can be found by clicking here.

Post cards with busing information will be mailed out in late August. Please remember that your student should be at their stop at least five (5) minutes prior to the pick up time. All transportation is based on five (5) days per week.

Emergency School Closing
School may be closed in the event of extreme weather conditions or emergency circumstances. Official announcements will be made over radio stations WCCO 830 AM and KCHK 1350 AM. KSTP-TV Channel 5 and KARE-11 display our school closings/late starts also. School closings can also be checked from this website.

Due to fast changing weather conditions, it may be necessary to send the children home early. Parents should remain alert to weather conditions throughout the day when early dismissal may be possible. These closings will be announced by radio stations normally used for weather announcements.

Middle School Bus Information

Parents are requested to make arrangements for transportation of their children to parties and overnight visits. All students will take their assigned bus home from school each day unless arrangements have been made between the student and the parent for someone to pick them up. Students who live within one (1) mile from their school and who do not have to cross any designated hazards, will not have bus transportation and are classified as walkers.
