Transportation to Hiawatha

  • Bus routes for the 2022-2023 school year are now available online (07/29/2022)!

    For children who live in the .5-mile-distance perimeter of the school, it is the family's responsibility to get students to school.

    • The EWSD does not provide Pre-K transportation on general education routes. 
    • If your student has an IEP that includes transportation, and you have questions, contact your case manager.
    • Every Wednesday, students will be dismissed at 1:45.  Please make arrangements for your child’s afterschool pick-up plan and be sure to include them on the sheet for dismissal information. If you need care for children because of early dismissal, visit the Afterschool page.
    • We have helpful information on our Walking page.
    • If you need to drive your child to school, please review the Drop-Off/Pick-Up instructions.

    Here are the EWSD walking zones:

    These are busing and walking zones for Essex Village schools. Crossing guard locations are marked.

    In the event of buses, if your home is NOT within a darker colored zone, you ARE eligible for buses.
