Transportation

WSD residential students live on campus during the week and go home on weekends. On Sunday, students arrive to WSD at various times between 7:00-10:00PM. On Friday, students leave between 10:30AM-12:15PM. Students are transported by chartered bus, commercial airplane, local educational districts or WSD provided state vehicles. Transportation monitors supervise chartered buses and commercial airplanes. There are occasions, depending on the age of the students, when a student will fly unaccompanied. Occasionally, a transportation monitor and/or WSD driver will drive students home in a WSD state vehicle.
