Children residing in District 196 (Rosemount, Apple Valley, & Eagan) are eligible to use District 196 transportation to and from school at no charge. For more information click the link here.
St. Joseph School follows the District 196 middle school year calendar and students ride middle school buses. For example, a middle school bus will pick up your child at your neighborhood bus stop. The first bus then transports children to the nearest District 196 middle school to your home. At that middle school, St. Joe’s students transfer to a St. Joseph School shuttle bus. The shuttle bus then transports students to St. Joe’s.
St. Joseph School will match new students, typically in kindergarten or 1st grade, with an older student “bus buddy.” The bus buddy can assist the younger student with transferring busses. We also have adult volunteers on-site at all District 196 middle schools for the first two days of each school year.
