Department Overview

In Cave Creek Unified School District the safety and security of our students is of the utmost importance.  In an effort to provide safety for our bus riders, we are requiring all students who ride the bus to be signed up for transportation through the parent portal. 

If you have any transportation questions, contact Pam Nelson   Thank you for your support in keeping our students safe.
