District Information

Transportation Department (Busing)

South Sioux City Community Schools is now accepting bus requests for the 2024-2025 school year. All families wishing for their students to ride the bus to and/or from school must complete the electronic bus request form. Due to limited capacity, services will be based on "first come first served"  so it is very important to register BEFORE the deadline of June 15, 2024.  Depending on the number of requests, we may not have enough seats for all that register.  Students will be placed on a wait-list for transportation if the district cannot initially honor the transportation request.  Please note that Cardinal Elementary and Harney Elementary schools are neighborhood schools and do not have busing. Do not complete the registration form if your student attends Cardinal or Harney. Busing is a fee based service and fees are published on the website. If you have any questions regarding busing, please contact Pat Bernstrauch at pat.bernstrauch@ssccards.org or 402-241-4080.
