Neil Oysti - Transportation Director
Transportation to and from school is offered to NICE Community School students each day. The safety of our students is the chief concern of the school, the transportation department and our staff. The transportation department handles the daily operation of 23 buses, 19 regular drivers with over two-hundred years of combined bus driving experience, one chief mechanic/driver, and thirty routes covering six-hundred, ninety square miles averaging one-thousand combined miles per day. We are the service facility for all school owned vehicles and equipment and enjoy an excellent state bus inspection record.
We ask that all students riding the buses conduct themselves in an orderly manner. Anything that happens on the bus to divert the driver’s attention immediately puts the safety of the children in jeopardy. We encourage each parent to take the time to review the bus safety rules with their children. The transportation staff asks for parental support and partnership to maintain our number one goal of student safety.
