Please note, all students must have a permanently assigned location for pick up and drop off. This location is the automatically assigned stop for the student's residence. An alternate location of pick up or drop off within the district may be requested if needed. There is a strict limit of one alternate location per student. Temporary bus changes will not be issued due to buses being loaded to capacity.  All changes must be done in writing for record keeping purposes. We cannot accept phone call changes. 

Buses will not make stops outside the Indian Lake School District. 

If your student(s) requires a change of transportation, please print and return this form transportationform.pdf to the IL Transportation Department. 
We must have this request in writing. For more information please contact Pat Smith at

In addition, we have had to make many adjustments to the bus routes to ease overcrowding.

Effective for the 2019-20 school year, we cannot approve any more alternate bus stop locations on buses 8 or 31 due to the high population density of the area they service. 

The following addresses are all located south of US 33 and west of SR 708 in the village of Russells Point. These are all 3-digit addresses, found on the following streets:

Aiken, Bristol, Buckeye, Cardinal, Center, Cline, Elliott, Fairview, Grand, High, Holly, Kress, Lake, Marshall, Miami, Park, Russell, Shady, Taylor, Warden

Additional addresses for bus 8 are:

CR 87/Duff Rd 11520-11975

Ash 10800-11100

Bentz 200-330

Daycol 10500-10700

If you are wishing to send your child to an alternate address in these zone, we will not be able to accommodate your request.   We must prioritize seating for the students who reside in this neighborhood.

We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
