Transportation Department 

McHenry Community High School District 156 shares transportation services with McHenry Elementary School District 15. Please see information below about accessing bus route information for your student(s).

Updated 2022

Routes are ready for view in the transportation department's ELInk (see instructions below), however please remember that they will change as we continue to process registrations.  We recommend you check your students bus stop information daily up to the first day of school and up to two weeks after school starts.  No changes will be made to routes between Aug. 5 through Aug. 21, in order to ensure consistent route assignments. 

Please remember that buses can run up to an hour late the first week of school.  We are diligently checking every student to ensure they are getting on the correct bus routes.  We also have a verification process to make sure each student is getting off at the correct stop.  Safety is paramount and these procedures take a significant amount of time.  Please feel free to reach out to the Transportation Office after this time frame to inquire on your student.  We encourage you to track your students bus with the VersaTrans My Stop Bus App. The app will show buses once school starts and buses are on the road.  Below is the information:

We are experiencing a driver shortage.  If you would like to become a school bus driver, please call 779-244-1090.  Due to this driver shortage we are asking that if you would like to opt your child/children out of bus service, or have the means to carpool, please email or call the Transportation Department at troffice@d15.org
