Dependent IDs
Wiesbaden students leaving the school campus during the school day must carry their Department of Defense dependent ID cards on- and off-campus with them at all times. Guards will conduct checks periodically.

School buses
The garrison encourages students to utilize the Department of Defense Dependents School buses that receive priority access to the installation. They are currently being utilized by less than 50 percent of those registered to ride them. For questions about acquiring a bus pass for your child, please call mil 337-2240 or civ (0611) 705-2240. Also, if buses are parked around school, dropping off or picking up students, drivers may pass them. It is a DoDEA and garrison expectation that parents walk their child to and from school/bus stop.
