The first bus pickups will begin at approximately 6:40 a.m.  Students should watch for the buses the first few days until the routes are established.  Be aware that if your child rode the bus last year, their bus number may have changed for this coming school year.  Even though your child’s bus number may have changed, they will still have the same bus driver.


Emergency Training for ALL buses will be August 30th, August 31st, and September 1st in the afternoon. Buses will deliver students home later than the normal scheduled time.  Make up days in case of inclement weather will be September 6th and 7th.


If your child did not ride the bus at all during the last half of last school year, your child was removed from the bus roster.  If you plan on utilizing the bus for this upcoming school year you must complete the transportation section within Final Forms.


If you have moved over the summer, it is extremely important that you contact your child’s school, as soon as possible, to update your address.  After you have updated your address with the school then contact the transportation department to request a change.  All bus requests will take up to a minimum of two (2) business days for the change to go into effect and they will be handled in the order in which they are received.  Due to the amount of busing requests the transportation department receives at the beginning of the school year, any busing requests received after the end of the business day of August 15th might not go into effect until after Labor Day.
