A “seat-available” option is provided for students attending Lakewood Middle School as agreed to by the Board of Education at the time LMS was opened. Students residing less than 2.5 miles from Lakewood Middle School may sign up for “seat-available” transportation at the time of enrollment. Approximately 2 weeks after classes begin, a determination is made as to how many seats are available on busses for students on the “seat-available” list. Priority is given to students living furthest from LMS for each bus route assigned to LMS. NOTE: USD 305 reserves the right to remove “seat-available” students from the bus roster if a student living 2.5 miles or more from LMS subsequently enrolls. Students must confirm their desire for seat available transportation at the time of enrollment.
