ALL NEW FAMILIES - INFORMATION
St. Patrick School students may utilize Brighton Area Schools Transportation System.
Morning Bus Procedures: All students are dropped off at Maltby/Hornung location. There they board the St. Patrick School transfer bus. All students arrive at St. Patrick School on one bus each morning.
Afternoon Bus Procedures: Bus riders are dismissed at 3:25pm. They meet in the gym lobby grouped according to their neighborhood public elementary school (Hilton, Hornung, Hawkins, and Spencer). Buses from each of those schools transport our students from St. Patrick School to their elementary school where they then will transfer to their assigned neighborhood bus. In some cases, the bus they board at St. Patrick School is also their home bus so a transfer is not necessary.
When students transfer to a new school, families are asked to complete a New Student Records Release form. This allows the prior school to forward your child’s school records to St. Patrick School.
