Transportation to and from Dayspring can be provided by local school districts, by registering for Dayspring’s transportation in your area, or parents may choose to transport their children to school directly.

If listed below, school district will provide transportation to Dayspring Christian Academy at no extra charge. Please click on your school district for details. Please note that some districts require that you complete an information form specific to their district. These forms should be completed and sent directly to your school district. Please take the time to read any information that is supplied by your local district.
We currently have three buses/vans that transport students directly to Dayspring. Dayspring’s drivers are fully-qualified members of the Dayspring staff; we do not contract out our drivers. Dayspring will work with any family who wants their child to use its transportation and arrange a suitable pick-up point. The school also picks up students that could be served by their local school district, but whose parents prefer them to take Dayspring transportation with their fellow students. The fee for the 2022-2023 year is $850 per family (regardless of the number of students a family places on the bus). If you are interested in more information on the cost and routes for Dayspring transportation, please contact John Riddell at email@example.com.

Of course, parents are always welcome to drive their child(ren) to school. If your child will be a car rider, you will be given a placard to place on your dashboard at pick-up. Students who are car riders are dropped off and picked up in the front of the school in the traffic circle.
Additionally, students that have a valid driver’s license may drive to school. Parents must fill out the student driver form and turn it in to the office. Student drivers will be given a placard as well. This must be placed on the dashboard of the student’s vehicle and students must park in designated parking areas. If your student driver is transporting siblings to school, please note this on the student driver form as well.
Please use the form below to register your student(s) for transportation for the upcoming school year. All enrolled families must complete the transportation form at the start of each school year.
NOTE: This form is for Dayspring use. Your home district may still require their own paperwork to be completed. Any district paperwork should be submitted directly to your home district, not to Dayspring. Please note that it is the responsibility of each family to make sure that they have completed all paperwork required by their home district. Any changes to a student’s normal dismissal routine must be given to the office prior to 1:00 p.m. each day so that bus lists are correct at dismissal. You may email the office with transportation changes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT: For district busing students only. Please note, in the case of an unexpected early dismissal (such as weather), all students who normally ride a bus home will be put on the bus unless we hear from the parent with a change in transportation. If after school activities are cancelled, those bus students will also be put on the bus. This will apply even if your district is dismissing early and Dayspring remains in session. Please make sure that you have signed up to receive notifications from your home district so that you are notified should they be having an early dismissal.
