Transportation boundaries and policies vary between elementary and older students.
Elementary Students (Grades K–5)
Students in kindergarten through grade 5 attend the school in the attendance area where their home is located, and school bus transportation is available for those who live beyond the transportation boundary, approximately 0.75 miles. District policy allows for transportation to and from a daycare location, but the daycare provider must be within the attendance area of the school the child attends.
Middle and High School Students (Grades 6–12)
The transportation boundary for students in grades 6–12 is approximately one mile from school property. State Highway 3 and State Hwy 246, south of Northfield High School, are considered hazardous crossings and transportation is available for students who would have to cross these highways.
