Quick Help

Required for all Families: Complete a Bus Transportation Form

All families that are enrolled in Hopkins Public Schools are asked to fill out a bus transportation form. If you do not need transportation, please complete the form and select "Bus Not Needed." 

If you need transportation, it is very important that you fill out a form as this is how we route buses. You need to fill out this form every year, even if your child(ren) used transportation last year. 

If your information changes, please notify the Transportation Department, 952-988-4115 or

Open Enrollment and Inter-District Transfers

Students who live outside their home school attendance boundary may use an already existing stop that is located in their home school attendance boundary, but only on a space-available basis. Parents are responsible for making sure the student is transported to and from the stop safely. If overcrowding occurs, students may be removed from the bus roster. To request use of transportation service at an existing bus stop, please complete the Transportation Form located in the Forms section.
