  • Department Overview

    The safe transportation of our students is a top priority for the Republic R-III School District. The district currently provides a reliable system of transportation for over 3,000 students and travels over 441,000 miles per year. To obtain your student's bus information or to verify the school attendance boundary for a specific address, please contact the Transportation Department at 417.732.3680.

  • Electronic Transportation Notices

    Starting this year, students who selected they will be riding a bus this year during online registration will need to login to the Parent Portal to see bus information. Bus letters will no longer be mailed out. For those who have completed online registration by August 12, bus information will be viewable on August 18 in the Parent Portal. Those who have not completed online registration by this date will experience a lag in being able to view transportation details in the Parent Portal. 


    Additionally, those needing to utilize the shuttle buses from the high school to the middle school can find information on this page beginning August 18. 


    If you do not see any bus information in the Parent Portal August 18, 2020, please call the Transportation Department at 417.732.3680. Information is updated nightly in the Parent Portal.


    Due to the volume of students being routed, bus stop locations and times need to be adjusted, so please check the day before school starts for the most up to date bus stop information.
