For non-Tyngsborough students, the school will coordinates a family-paid bus service to some locations in the Billerica, Chelmsford, Lowell/Dracut and Lowell/ Tewksbury areas. Please read the form instructions carefully. 

Christianson Bus Form

Please note: this is a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED service and space is limited – the time that you complete the form will establish your position on the bus list.

Important:  The form linked above is to get information on preferred stop requests. At this time, some buses are fully enrolled, so we cannot guarantee you preferred stop. You will be notified as soon as a seat is allocated and you will be notified and a payment of at least 50% deposit will be required to secure the seat. 

          Standard fees: $300 for one child, or $250 per child for families with more than one child riding the bus.
          For families that qualify* for free or reduced price meals the rates are $50 per child.
                 *Qualification for free or reduced price meals requires verification by the school.
          Payments may be made using the Transportation Payment Form

 

Carpool

Many families carpool to IACS. The school has a form to help families find each other for car pooling. To learn more, please review our Carpool Flyer. This flyer will explain the process and allow for sign up.
