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 and high school buses. For 2020-2021, a high school school bus will pick up your child at your neighborhood/zoned bus stop. The first bus then transports children to the nearest District 196 high school to your home. At that high school, St. Joe’s students transfer to a St. Joseph School shuttle bus. The shuttle bus then transports students to St. Joe’s. In the afternoon, the students will transfer through your zoned middle school.
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.
