For many students, riding the bus is a safe way to get to school on time. Buses also provide riders with opportunities to do schoolwork; buses now feature a managed Wi-Fi network so that students can use their district-issued iPads while they’re on the road.
Who may ride the bus
In general, students who live one mile or farther from the school. Contact the school office at 360-313-5200 to begin riding.
Where stops are located
Our students catch the morning bus in their neighborhood to the resident middle school and then transfer to a bus coming to iTech. View the morning and afternoon bus stop locations and pickup times.
How to make a change
Need to ride a different bus temporarily? Change routes or stops? Inform the school office. A note is required to ride with a friend.
Tips for riding the bus
Listen to the driver
Bus drivers work to keep everyone safe. Always follow the driver’s instructions to help him or her get you to your destination.
Be ready on time
Arrive at the bus stop five minutes before pickup. This will help the driver stay on schedule and let everyone arrive at their destination on time.
Wait until the bus has completely stopped and cross only in front of a bus, never behind. Stay sitting while the bus is moving.
Keep pets and objects that could be dangerous at home. Don’t eat food or drink beverages on the bus; others may have allergies.
Keep conversations at a low volume to allow the driver to concentrate. Respect the rights and property of others at all times.
