What to do if
I want to change buses permanently?
Contact the school bus coordinator for a new application form or download an electronic copy from the link in the documents table above. The new place of residence will need to meet the required criteria for the student to remain eligible to use a DECD bus to their current school.
I want to change stops - permanently or temporarily?
To change bus stops temporarily, give a note signed by your parent or caregiver to Student Services for a bus pass if a seat is available. For a permanent change of bus stop, parents or caregiver are to contact the Bus Coordinator at Nuriootpa High School.
I want to use another bus for a special occasion?
A diary note signed by the parent or caregiver must be presented to Student Services with 24 hours notice. Approval will be based on availability of seats.
I am not going home on the bus tonight or won't be using the bus for a short period of time?
Please inform the bus driver of this.
I need to visit the street between the bus arriving at school and school starting, and/or school finishing and the bus departing?
A signed diary note is required at Student Services requesting approval for this.
