Kenosha Busing Information
Kenosha busing is free to those Middle and Upper School students who qualify. Students who live over 2 miles from St. Joseph Catholic Academy and within the Kenosha Unified School District are eligible for busing. (Other district regulations may also interfere.)
- Students should sign up for busing at registration or call the Upper Campus Main Office for a busing registration form, in the main office, at (262) 654-8651, before July 1st. Please do not call the busing company.
- All busing requests are sent to Kenosha Unified in June for the determination of eligibility, bus stops, and the various routes and times. All parents/guardians are notified in August, before school begins, as to the route and times for their student.
- If your student does not qualify for the school bus, some students will be granted a “city bus pass” to ride the city bus, also free of charge. Information is available through the City Transit Office regarding times and stops that the city bus makes.
Illinois Busing Information
Busing is currently available to all Illinois Middle and Upper School students for an additional fee. The fee for the 2014-2015 school year is $850 per student. Due to Illinois state law, busing students over state lines has some limitations. When a Wisconsin school bus crosses over the state line to pick up students, it is limited to the parking lot of businesses, churches, and schools. The buses will NOT be able to stop at private residences, private driveways, or along roadsides. See the bottom of this page for the ILLINOIS BUSING FORM.
