New Opt in Procedure for School Year 2022-2023

Osseo Area Schools is implementing a new transportation opt-in requirement for the 2022-23 school year. This process will not change bus riding eligibility for students but will require parents/caregivers of transportation-eligible  students in grades kindergarten through 12 to declare how their student(s) will get to and from school. 

Follow the link to complete the form: 2022-23 Transportation Registration

If the form does not indicate a bus is needed or a form is not received, students will not receive a bus assignment to start the 2022-23 school year.
