Over the last two years, school meals have been free to all of our students, regardless of income, due to a pandemic-related provision of the federal school nutrition program. This year, we return to offering paid, reduced-price, and free breakfasts and lunches depending on need.

For this reason, it is important for families who may have a need to fill out an updated free and reduced meal application as soon as possible to avoid being charged unnecessarily!

For more about meals in Canby School District and to view our menus, visit the Nutrition Services web page.

Click here for more information about Transportation

Student Transportation of America provides bus transportation for Canby School District. Together with STA, we want to make every ride a great ride! If you plan to have your student ride a school bus this year, here are a couple of important notes.

  • Take a look at this Checklist for a Great Ride, and please share it with your students. Note that bus drivers will be implementing assigned seating to help them get to know students and to help keep riders safe.
  • Tentative bus routes are posted on our transportation web page and will be updated a few times each year, but for the latest route information and to track your student’s bus in real time, use the Traversa Ride 360 app – available online and for free in the App Store and Google Play. To add a student in the app for the first time, click "Find Student" and fill in all fields: the student's six-digit student ID number, their school, and their grade level (include a zero before single-digit grades, e.g. 08).
  • Please know that if your student does not ride the bus for two weeks, they will be dropped from their route. If you have extenuating circumstances and want to ensure your student is not dropped or you have other questions about your student’s route, please contact your school secretary or STA at 503-263-1007 or CanbySchoolBus@ridesta.com.
See iPad questions below

The Canby School District provides a dedicated internet-enabled iPad to all students in grades K-12 to provide students with digital curricula and to aid instruction. In one hand-held device, students have access to textbooks, school and classroom communication tools, a word processor, and so much more. We strongly believe that making appropriate technology available is essential to developing Canby School District graduates who are ready for the opportunities of today's world!

For more information, see our iPad FAQ here.

Banner image for Student Accident Insurance - See information below

The safety of our students is important to all of us and we want to protect them! Still, accidents happen (at school and elsewhere), and medical care can be expensive. Canby schools do not assume responsibility for such costs, but we offer access to several student accident insurance plans for voluntary purchase. Review the available plans and pricing in the attached brochure/enrollment form.

If you have questions or need help with enrollment, please call Myers-Stevens & Toohey at 800-827-4695. Bilingual representatives are available for parents who need assistance in Spanish.
