NP3 Middle School provides bus transportation throughout Natomas, including north and south Natomas and Regency areas. Buses run before school and after school. There is a 3:15 bus that leaves Monday-Wednesday and Fridays and a 1:15 bus that leaves on early out Thursdays. There is an additional bus that runs daily at 4:15 for students who are involved with activities or stay on campus for homework help. NP3 contracts with NUSD to provide transportation services. Families who qualify may receive free or reduced services.
New Information for July 2015
In an effort to ensure a smooth start to bus transportation in August 2015, the Transportation Department will be processing bus pass applications electronically. Parents can now begin submitting applications for the 2015-2016 school year.
The bus pass application link can be found on the school website and is available on the District Transportation Department site.
When available, your children’s 2014 – 2015 school pictures will be printed on their bus identification cards. If a school picture in not on file, a staff member will contact you so that you can schedule an appointment to bring your child in to have their picture taken.
Students will be assigned to the safest established school bus stop that is closest to their homes. The 2015 – 2016 bus identification cards will be printed and delivered to schools for parent pick-up either from front offices (when they reopen after summer break) or at summer orientation events. Bus schedules will also be available at this time.
Please be advised that NUSD will not be collecting fees for 2015-2016 bus passes.
Our staff is looking forward to working together with you and your children to provide safe and dependable bus transportation during the 2015 – 2016 school year.
If you have any questions regarding this process or need assistance submitting your application, please contact the Transportation Department at 916.567.5493
