School Bus Transportation

All students new to the district who need school bus transportation are required to register online with KWRL Transportation in order to ride the school bus.  To register, click HERE .  KWRL Transportation’s website is:  https://sites.google.com/woodlandschools.org/kwrl.

Students who were registered with KWRL last year are automatically registered for school bus transportation this year.  This includes students who will attend the new 5-8 campus (Sunset Ridge Intermediate and View Ridge Middle School). 

Note:  If a registered student’s address or emergency contact has changed from last year, or if the student’s school has changed due to the new boundary rules, re-registration will be required.

Two weeks prior to the first day of school, KWRL will inform parents/guardians via a robo call and via email of the bus route information for their student(s).

For questions regarding school bus transportation, please contact KWRL Transportation at 360-841-2023.
