Bus Information and Routes
(Parent Portal Login required)

The SHS Bus Program is run 100% by parent volunteers in cooperation with the Schools. Eight buses provide service to and from Sacred Heart Schools in several neighborhoods where our children live - from the Gold Coast on the south, Lincoln Square on the north, Lincoln Park on the east and Lakeview on the west. The stops are centrally located where our families are “clustered.” The bus program accommodates children in all grades (K-8). Buses arrive at school for the 8:30 am start time, and depart at 3:40 pm, Monday through Thursday, and 2:45 pm on Fridays.

Bus stops and routes are based on many criteria, including safety of the bus stop location, number of stops, and location of residences. Bus availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Some of the buses are currently at capacity.

Register online

Priority is given to existing bus-riders who register during the early registration period. Space allocation is determined by bus color registration and seniority. All others will be accommodated if space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
