The final bus routes for the 2017-2018 school year are posted below. The transportation office will open at 6 am on Tuesday, September 5th. Staff will be checking voicemail messages throughout the holiday weekend. However, all changes are final until after school starts. Going forward, if we need to make any changes to a route that will change the times on the route, each student will receive a letter from the transportation office to take home to parents, and an automated call will go out to all parents on that particular run giving at least a two-day notice.

If you are new to the area and just registered your child within the last 2 days, and they are not in PowerSchool, you will need to transport your child to and from school until registration is complete. Transportation cannot transport a student until they are completely enrolled.

The bus route files are password protected and the password that was sent home previously through a Blackboard Connect email will be required to access the file.  The bus routes have been divided by school and morning/afternoon to make finding your child's route easier.

 Updated Information Regarding Bus Drop-Offs This Year

Consistent with many other school divisions, students who are in the 2nd grade or older will now be allowed to walk home from the bus stop without an escort.  Pre-school through 1st grade students must have an escort that is in the 5th grade or older.  A 5th grade student escort must be a family member of the student he/she is escorting.  These are just minimum requirements.  The distance between a bus stop and the home, as well as the remoteness of the area, and overall safety varies throughout the county.  A parent always has the final responsibility as to how a child gets from the bus stop to the home. 

Also, the activity bus will run as it always has this year. Activity bus service will begin the second week of school on September 11, 2017.
