Transportation

  • Bussing: With student safety in mind, Big Woods was designed with a separate bussing area. All students who ride the bus will be picked up and dropped off near Door D, which is located on the west side of the school. The road leading to the bus lot is restricted to "bus only" traffic from 7:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

    When students arrive at school, they will be instructed to enter the building using Door D. All students arriving before 7:30 will be supervised in the neighborhood hallways.

    Transportation is provided by Don's Bus Service, Inc. of Albertville. Please call (763) 497-2585 with any questions regarding busing information.
