Bus Schedule 2017-18- Updated Sept. 15th

Monday, August 21st, 2017

There will be no bus stop changes until further notice as of the 9-18-17 update to provide a routine schedule and consistent route for all.

School Year 2017-18 Bus Routes
As of September 15, 2017

Starting times are indicated for the first stop of each bus route. Plan on roughly 5 minutes between every stop on the route.

School Year 2017-2018 Transportation Routes

  1. Please be 10 minutes early to your morning pickup location. Buses tend to run a little behind the first days of school and will settle into a timely routine in 2-3 weeks.
  2. Afternoon runs tend to run behind as well the first 2-3 weeks.
  3. Be respectful of the personal property that abuts the bus stop.
  4. No “boom boxes” will be allowed on the buses.
  5. If transporting musical instruments on the bus, check with the driver as to where they should be placed. Space is tight as each bus has a large number of riders.
  6. Bus riders in grades kindergarten through second grade must be met by a parent/guardian/or designated other. If not, they will be returned to school and must be picked up there.
  7. Bus riders in grades kindergarten through second grade will be provided (at school) a bus tag that must remain on their backpack for the duration of the school year.
  8. Please see your school’s handbook for bus riding rules.
  9. Only student bus riders may board the bus. Parents/guardians/designated others must wait curbside.
