All in-district kindergarten students are eligible for transportation to and from school. Our regular education transportation contractor is Lorenz Bus Service, for Special Education it is Voigt’s Bus Service. Click here to visit our Transportation website.
If your kindergartner will be in daycare, it is very important to indicate this during the online enrollment process. Also, if there are any address changes throughout the year, please keep the Transportation Department and your school office updated. Before changing daycare, make sure the daycare is still in the district attendance area, otherwise the student will not get transportation to and from that daycare.
Kindergarten students ride the regular morning and afternoon school buses. You should receive a postcard in the mail approximately two weeks before school starts. Bus stop information will also be available in Campus Portal.
If you have questions regarding transportation, call 763-600-5590 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Minnesota law requires that your child must be screened for enrollment in public school. This service is offered at no cost to all families who live in Spring Lake Park Schools. If you are planning to send your child to private school or to home school, the law does not require the screening. However, we still encourage you to participate.
This is a wonderful opportunity for you to find out how your child is developing and for you to find out more about resources and programs in our community.
Children may be screened between the ages of three-five. The ideal age for screening is near your child’s fourth birthday.
