Metro Transit

Students living outside the school’s walk boundary will be eligible to receive an ORCA Card. The ORCA Card should be kept secure and in good condition. A lost, stolen or damaged ORCA Card may be replaced at a cost of $25. The old card will be deactivated and the new card activated. Forms for replacement ORCA Cards do no need a parent signature. The ORCA Cards are active from the first day of school and will be good through the last day of school. Students and guardians are required to sign an initial issue form or a reactivation form which outlines district transportation’s rules of use for ORCA Cards.
