The Marshall bus program, considered a San Diego Unified neighborhood route, will not resume during county Covid restrictions. The program will be re evaluated for service when Covid restrictions are lifted.

This evening we held a lottery on zoom for 2020-21 school year buses.
Unfortunately, plans for school and therefore busing are still not set for the next school year. According to the district:
"We are currently looking at CDC guidelines to determine the level of service that they will be able to provide for the upcoming school year. We will not have any definitive answers until the end of July."
With this in mind, we cannot guarantee that the results from the lottery will stand.
No lottery was necessary for the EBS bus because there are currently 9 empty seats. There were only 2 spots available for the Dingeman 2 route. This was due to the fact that many priority riders from other routes chose to switch to Dingeman 2. In addition, there were many priority siblings of current riders.
Your student is identified below by a number you chose upon registration. If you misplaced your registration confirmation, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If your number was not chosen, you will automatically be placed on the waiting list for the bus you registered for. If you would like to switch routes please email email@example.com.
If you participated in the lottery for any route and did not "win" and you are interested in one of the remaining seats on the EBS bus, please contact us by Sunday June 7th. We will use the random value generated this evening to add riders.
We will be in touch over the summer as we hear any news from the district.

Marshall Middle School Bus Open Registration (May 4th-25th)
Registration is currently open for all families with students who will be attending Marshall Middle School next year and reside in the San Diego Unified school district.
Priority registration will be given to the following:
1) Returning Riders - Students who were assigned a seat from the previous year, and who will be attending Marshall Middle School in the fall, will have priority over new riders providing their account with the San Diego Unified School District transportation department is paid in full by the last day of registration. Returning Riders must submit an online registration form within the registration window each year to continue service.
2) Siblings of Returning Riders - Siblings of Returning Riders that will be attending Marshall Middle School in the fall will also have priority over new registrants. However, both siblings must be Marshall Middle School students at the same time in order to reserve a seat for the sibling, otherwise the incoming MMS student will be subject to the lottery system. Siblings must be registered on the same online form as the Returning Rider via the registration process.
You will only be able to register for 1 bus route. If more registrations are received for a given route than bus seats available, a lottery will be used to determine who will make it on the bus and the order for the waiting list. Details for the lottery (scheduled for June 2nd) will be emailed to all families once registration is closed.
To assist families in selecting which route to register for, the following preregistration numbers provide approximate available seats open for each route:
Dingeman 1: 29
Dingeman 2: 13
Swan Lake: 25
Please proceed to register at the following:

The MMS Bus Committee was able to conduct a virtual meeting last week to determine the best way forward for bus seat sign-ups for next school year. We are moving back the registration to May to allow families time to adjust to online schooling. Registration for the 2020 - 2021 school year is now set for May 4th - May 25th. Flyers will be sent to the schools this week for distribution to the families concerning signups. If you would like to receive a personal email for next year signups, please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We had originally planned to begin signups for returning students and their siblings starting today (March 4th), however this is being delayed a few days as we are in the process of moving signups to a new platform. We anticipate this will be complete within the next few days. We will email all current families with the signup link as soon as it's ready. This will still allow over 3 weeks for returning families to pre-register returning riders and siblings.
