Transportation Information 2021-2022

As a part of the District’s reconfiguration process, transportation has been restructured for District students.  This restructuring includes changes for students who walk to school and the location of bus stops.  
  1. All parents should log into the Wilkes-Barre Area Transportation Portal below.  
  2. Parents should log into the E-link system using their child’s District computer username and password. This should be completed for each child in a household.  
  3. If you do not know your child’s computer password it can be found in the Skyward Family Access portal by clicking on Family and Student Resources under Quick Links on the webpage.
  4.  For additional questions regarding access please contact your child’s school.  
The transportation link will note the following information;
  • if your child walks or rides a bus to school.
  • the bus stop location.
  • The time of pick up and drop off.  
Students and parents as appropriate should be at the bus stop 10 minutes prior to their designated pick up or drop off time.

Family Broadband / Internet Survey

Without Internet access and connected devices, many students in our communities lack the ability to participate in remote learning and complete homework after the school day has ended. In an effort to identify these gaps, the PA Association of Intermediate Units (PAIU) and Penn State Extension have teamed up to conduct a short survey. The data collected will greatly assist our schools with obtaining local, state and federal broadband funding to provide additional resources to our students and families. Thank you in advance for your time in taking this survey!
