Details

Accountability for each rider will be managed by a Digital Log.

A parent of each rider will fill out a registration form that includes home address, where the child will be riding to, parent contact information (cell phone)  and a current photo for ID purposes.

The email address listed on the registration form will be used for any notifications throughout the school year.

Pick-up and drop off schedule will be based on enrollment in the program and the route established by Minnesota River Valley Transit staff.

In the event that Saint Peter Schools operates with a late start at 10:00 AM, there will be no morning route that day.

Registration

Registrations made or received during the calendar week preceding the start of preschool may not receive service during the first week of school. This is necessary so that schedules can be set and provided to parents without last minute changes.

Completed registration forms can be emailed to Operations Manager Sandi Owen, dropped off at the Finance Department, City Hall, 227 S. Front St., Saint Peter or dropped off at the MRVT Transit Office in Le Sueur, 601 S. Fifth St., Le Sueur.
