GETTING READY FOR SCHOOL
School Supply Lists
The Transportation Department develops bus routes and stops each year. This information is published approximately one week before school begins.
Whenever possible, bus stops will placed at a street corner. Bus stops are designed to be no more than 2/10 (.2) miles from a student's home, per School Board policy. Parents are encouraged to walk elementary school students to and from the bus stop, and to be at the stop10 minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. All stop times are approximate and can vary based on conditions such as traffic, road conditions, and new stops based on student enrollment changes.
Please click on the links below to view the bus routes and stops for the 2013-2014 school year. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these documents.
PLEASE NOTE THAT RUNS ARE CONTINUALLY UPDATED THROUGH THE FIRST MONTH OF SCHOOL. PLEASE ARRIVE AT STOP 10 MINUTES PRIOR TO LISTED BUS TIME. FOR QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT THE TRANSPORTATION OFFICE AT 357-9926, 357-8816 or 357-8048.
TEACH YOUR CHILD TO GET ON AND OFF THE BUS SAFELY:
- When getting on the bus, stay away from the danger zone and wait for the driver's signal. Board the bus one at a time.
- When getting off the bus, look before stepping off the bus to be sure no cars are passing on the shoulder (side of the road). Move away from the bus.
- Before crossing the street, take five "giant steps" out from the front of the bus, or until the driver's face can be seen (A). Wait for the driver to signal that it's safe to cross.
- Look left-right-left when coming to the edge of the bus to make sure traffic is stopped. Keep watching traffic when crossing.
