Dear Elk River Area Schools Parent or Guardian:
Vision of Elk River, inc. has a goal to provide superior service at a reasonable price that fits with today’s educational budgets. We take great pride in serving the school districts we provide transportation to, and look forward to serving their communities for years to come.
Our mission is the highest degree of safe and efficient transportation of students to and from school. We strive to create conditions that contribute to the success of students by providing a comfortable, reliable, and safe service that responds to the changing needs of the Elk River Area Schools diverse student population.
Approximately 13,000 students will attend school this year in District 728, and about 10,000 of them will ride a bus to and from school. Our fleet of over 100 buses will travel more than 1 million miles this year and consume more than 158,000 gallons of fuel.
Even with the astounding number of students and buses on the road daily, School Bus Transportation remains the safest form of transportation on the road for students. This is largely due to the rigorous training completed by our employees.
In order to give needed attention to the ever-changing traffic situations, it is vital that drivers get full cooperation from their passengers and that all students obey the bus rules. Please help promote safety and good rider-ship by reviewing bus safety rules with your children along with familiarizing yourself with other resources and information on this website.
By working together we can safeguard your child from potential hazards associated with all aspects of transportation, both on and off the bus. Our hope is that you and your child have a safe and productive year.
