Richfield Public Schools will resume classes Tuesday, Sept. 4 following the Labor Day holiday.
And, of course, it's imperative for parents to get their kids off to the bus stop in time to make it to class. So, here's what you need to know:
Elementary school students (kindergarten through Grade 5) can ride the bus for free if they live more than one mile away from their school. For students in Grade 6 through Grade 12, it's two miles away.
Those who don't qualify for the free ride, may ride the bus for a fee as part of the schools Pay-to-Ride program, which is $302 per student for the entire year. Those students on free or reduced lunch, the fees are $151 and $226.50, respectively.
There is also an option for riding just in the winter season (Nov. 1 through April 30). The fee is $151 per student, however, for those on free and reduced lunch the cost is $75.50 and $113.25, respectively.
Applications for the ride program are approved on a first come, first served basis and will be taken until Aug. 31. The applications, in both English and Spanish, have been attached to this article as PDFs.
