​Risen Christ Elementary students (kindergarten-6th grade) can receive transportation from the public school district.


  1. Parents request transportation from the public school district in writing.
  2. Specify student name, address, and phone number and the name, address, and phone number of Risen Christ.
    Risen Christ Lutheran School
    41 E. Possum Road
    Springfield, OH 45502
    (937) 323-3688
  3. The 30 Minute Rule — Risen Christ must be within a 30 minute drive from the public school on a school bus during the school day. Thirty minutes is timed starting from the public school where the student would be assigned.
  4. In certain cases, a public school district may declare a student “impractical” to transport and instead provide a limited reimbursement payment to the parent.
  5. On the first Monday in August, follow up on your transportation request with a phone call to your district’s bus transportation office.
  6. Be patient. Whether your child attends public or private school, it can take up to two weeks for the bus schedule to become regular.
