Student Parking Permits
Parking permit registration is required for all students who intend to drive to Burnsville High School. Please click on the link below to register for a parking pass. Once completed, you will be directed to a payment link for the pass. The cost for a parking permit for the 22-23 school year is $125. Students who park onsite during the school day are expected to complete this registration. Parking permits will be distributed at our BHS Open House on Wednesday, Aug. 31, from 4-8 p.m. After Aug. 31, parking permits can be picked up in the main office during school hours.
Regulations regarding student driving, parking and use of parking lot:
- All vehicles parked on school grounds must be registered with the school. All vehicles must display a current school hanging permit and park only in the designated student parking areas (South lot area designated for students ONLY).

Riding the Bus
District 191 provides safe and efficient transportation to special education students, and regular education student who qualify. Students who qualify for transportation include secondary students who live 1.5 miles or more from school.
The walking distance is defined as the shortest distance from the child’s residence by public walkway, street or highway to the assigned entrance of the school the student attends as measured by the District’s computerized GIS map.
Where is my bus?
District 191 uses a GPS tracking system that allows families to see where their student's bus is along the route and an estimated time that it will arrive at their stop.
