We assign students routes and bus stops based on their home addresses. You can find bus stops and times through our online route service. 

TIP: You will need to enter your full and exact address, as it would appear on a property assessment. For example: 1234 NW Mystreet. (Entering 1234 Mystreet or 1234 Mystreet NW would not work).

If your child was accepted as an in-district transfer (from one CK school to another), you are responsible for your own transportation. Central Kitsap residents may request to ride a school bus. You need to reapply each year. Seats are offered on a space-available basis. 

Safe Walking


If your children walk, talk with them about ways to stay safe on the walk to school.

Find suggestions for safe walking routes on the district website under Services > Transportation. 

Lunch and Breakfast


You can find menus and nutrition information under Services in the navigation menu. 

Apply for free or reduced lunch at myschoolapps.com or fill in and turn in an application form to the main office. You must re-apply every year to continue getting free or reduced lunch prices. You can also download the form and learn more on our free- and reduced price meal page.
