Each day, we experience extremely high call volume between the hours of 6:45 am – 8:30 am and between 2:15 pm – 5:30 pm. During these hours, it is extremely difficult to get through to the Transportation Department. If you can’t get through, please keep trying!

Notice to Parents of School Bus Riders
Your driver has been instructed to pick up students anywhere along the bus route during the first three days of school. After that time, students will be informed of their bus stop location and approximate pick up time. Students may be asked to change the location of their stop to better serve all students and to meet our policy requirements. No changes will be made in the bus runs during the first week of school. Many students are not enrolled until after school starts and we cannot get a true analysis of our needs until after that time. Times listed for stops are an estimate. We have instructed drivers to start their runs at the designated times for the first week, but the arrival time for your stop may not be exact. The driver may make minor adjustments (under 5 minutes), but our office will notify you of major changes. We do ask that your child be at the stop five minutes before the scheduled time each day ready to board the bus. If you do have a critical safety situation and try to phone our office, the phone may be busy - Keep Trying! If you get through and cannot hold on, please leave a message. We will return your call as soon as humanly possible. This is a very busy time for us and your understanding and cooperation are appreciated.
Because the school bus is an extension of the classroom, we are an integral part of the education of all students within our school district. Safety is high priority and a group effort. Students, parents, teachers, school administrators, and drivers are all assigned responsibility. We value each and every student and will emphasize that by treating each student with dignity and respect. We are committed to providing the safest, consistent, reliable transportation possible and will strive to continually upgrade our service to students and parents as it becomes possible. Please call 770-443-8035 for late bus information.
