ALERT- IMPORTANT CHANGES/UPDATES TO STUDENT BUSSING FOR 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR:

Due to bus capacity and potential cohorting/contact tracing requirements the following transportation changes will be implemented this year.

  • Alternate Stops and Bus Notes:Alternate stops and/or bus note passes are not available this year.

  • Transportation will be limited to school to home and home to school except for one Childcare Provider (CCP) location scheduled in advance. An established weekly schedule is required to obtain approval for bus transport to a CCP.Bus stop schedule changes require advance notice and must be submitted to the school office on a new Transportation Registration Form. Approval is based on bus capacity and seat availability.

  • Childcare Provider (CCP) Bus Stop Schedule Requirement/Details:A set weekly schedule is required for both CCP and HOME bus routes when applying for a CCP bus stop. Changes to days of the week bussed to either HOME or CCP location must be requested at least 5 days in advance by submitting an updated Transportation Registration Form. NOTE: If you have a last minute change and are unable to provide this 5 day advance notice please notify/contact your student’s school directly AND arrange for parent pick-up/alternative transportation for your student.

  • Early Release Friday: Early Release Friday is back this year!Expect your student(s) bus to arrive Friday afternoon approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes earlier than it does on the regular Monday-Thursday schedule.

  • CDC Requirements due to COVID-19:  Federal guidelines require the use of face coverings on school busses. Masks will be required on the bus. If your student does not have a mask they will be provided one as they board the bus. This CDC order remains in effect until lifted by the federal government and cannot be waived by state or local authorities.
