2022-23 Bus registration

From Newton Public Schools:

Dear NPS Families,

As this school year draws to a close, we are already planning for the 2022-23 school year. To that end, we have now opened the online bus registration portal for registration. It will be open until Monday, August 8, 2022. You MUST register by August 8th to secure your student’s seat on the bus. 

We STRONGLY encourage you to register your student before the end of this school year. We know summers can be busy times for families and we want to make sure we account for all students as we plan our bus capacity and routes. 

Below we have shared key details about the bus registration process. We look forward to safely transporting your student(s) next year.
