School Bus Lottery for Shorewood Elementary – Sept. 25

Eagle’s Wing will be contracting with Riteway Leasing to provide transportation from Shorewood Hills Elementary School for the 2019-2020 school year. Please note the following change: Due to rising transportation costs, the bus will transport children one way from Shorewood Elementary School to Eagle Heights. Morning transportation to Shorewood Elementary is NOT available for the 2019-2020 school year.

The bus will start transporting children on Nov. 4, through the end of the school year. Transportation is available for children in kindergarten through fifth grade, with priority given to children from kindergarten through second grade.

Bus Lottery Instructions

Registration for the bus lottery will take place on Sept. 25. To take part in the lottery, please send an email to eagleswing@housing.wisc.edu with the following information:

  • Child’s name
  • Child’s birthdate
  • Grade
  • Parents name and address

All emails dated Sept. 25 are entered in the lottery. The specific time the email is received that day will not matter. The drawing is on Sept. 26 with notification emails sent out that day and Sept. 27. The cost will be $40.00 per month, billed to your housing account.

All children who take the bus must be able to walk independently to and from the bus. Each child will have a U/A bus pass to attach to a backpack or lanyard so it is easily visible for the driver. The bus will drop off children at the Community Center and the Brown Bus Shelter. A teacher will ride the bus to take attendance and provide supervision for children who are attending Eagle’s Wing.
