Transportation

Hello PPA Families -

     As this very unusual school year comes to an end, I wanted to make sure that you have all the information for your student(s) who will be requesting transportation via school bus for the upcoming school year of 2020-2021.  Not knowing exactly what this will look like as yet, it is very important that you follow your correct school district’s requirements being that each district may differ in procedures.  

Columbus City School District
  • If you completed an online application for your student(s), you will NOT have to submit an application again, the information will rollover for the new school year of 2020-2021.
  • If you have a NEW student attending Patriot, you must complete an online application for that student.  
  • If you have recently moved, you MUST fill out a change of address (available on Patriot’s website under transportation and at the front office) and return to Mrs. Briggs.
  • If you want your student(s) to be picked up or dropped off at a location other than your home, you still need to fill out a Form 1 (available on Patriot’s website under transportation and at the front office) and return it to Mrs. Briggs.
  • If you have a Kindergarten - 2nd grade student, you MUST sign the DROP-OFF permission form allowing the student(s) to walk home alone, wait alone at the stop, or walk home with a sibling. Deadline for ALL forms is Friday, June 5, 2020.
    Reminder: If information is not completed and received by the deadline, this will cause a delay in your student’s routing for 2020-2021.

  • You MUST fill out a NEW application for each student in your household requesting transportation (available on Patriot’s website and the front office). Groveport Madison is now also requiring: 1. Proof of Residency, which is a current mortgage statement or lease agreement in the name of the Parent/Guardian.  If the lease is month-to-month, a type-written statement on business letterhead, from the landlord must be provided.  The letter must include the landlord’s contact information, address of rental, Parent/Guardian’s name, length of the month-to-month and the current date.  2. Current Utility Bill - be that a water, gas, electric, landline phone, cable/internet are all acceptable. Deadline is Friday, June 5, 2020.  These documents can be dropped off at their office located at 4400 Marketing Place or emailed to [email protected]
