    The Wareham School Department requires payment of a bus fee for all students intending to use bus transportation for the 2020-2021 school year. Under the following guidelines, Massachusetts General

    Law CH. 71, S. 68, requires that school committees provide free transportation, once daily to and from school for students in grades K-6 who live more than two (2) miles from their assigned schools.  

    Ride Free: Only students in grades K-6 who live more than two (2) miles from their assigned schools receive free bus transportation.   

     

    Pay to Ride:  BUS FEE WILL BE CHARGED for students in Grades K-6 residing less than two (2) miles from their assigned school, and ALL students in Grades 7-12, regardless of distance. If you are in the non-serviceable area (1.0 mile or less) of your school you are not eligible for transportation.

     

    It is MANDATORY that all parents fill out a bus registration form regardless of your fee status to ensure your child has a seat on the bus.
