A SAFE RIDE TO SCHOOL

The Kennewick School District Transportation Department starts each day with one mission: To get your child to and from school safely and reliably. We transport thousands of students to and from school every day. Our bus drivers are specially trained professionals who have your student’s best interest in mind — from morning pick-up until school day’s end.  

No Trespassing Allowed On School District Buses

The Richard L. Lenhart Act passed through Washington’s legislature makes it a gross misdemeanor crime to trespass on public school buses.  A gross misdemeanor punishment includes up to nearly a year in jail, a fine of up to $5,000 or both.
