If the student numbers warrant it and an approved, licensed driver is available, WCS busing is often provided to events such as sporting events and field trips. However, in the event that it is not available, parent volunteers are necessary for student transportation. For certain events, such as the Solo & Ensemble Music Competition (in Edgerton, MN) and two day basketball tournament (in Sioux Falls), transportation is provided by or arranged for by the student's family.
If the students will be transported by bus for a field trip or service project outside of the immediate Worthington area, a permission slip must be completed by the parent/guardian prior to each event for the student to participate. All WCS-sponsored busing conducted in the Worthington area is approved by families at the beginning of the year by signing a single permission slip. See the WCS Family/Forms page for materials like permission slips.
The goal of WCS is to educate children in the light of God’s Word and to prepare them for a life of service to God, to His Creation, and to their community.
