Changes to Bus Routes

September 27, 2017 -- In an effort to decrease the amount of time some of our students have been waiting for their afternoon buses home, the district has opted to add four new bus routes, which has reduced waiting time considerably. In addition to the new routes, the existing routes 10, 11, 12, and 13 have been adjusted as well. Please refer to this notice (PDF) which gives a description of each route, the locations and grades they serve.

As indicated in the notice, all the routes in question now start at 7 a.m. – which gives time for all students to get breakfast if they choose to do so. At dismissal there are no longer any “B” runs – your student will not have to wait for their bus to return for the second run – and they will board at dismissal or as soon as the bus arrives to load at their building. Please expect to make changes to the time you were meeting your student at the stop or when they are dropped off in the afternoon – all "B" run students will be home / at the stop approximately 20 minutes earlier than they currently are.

The changes are scheduled to begin on Monday, October 2, 2017 so please be prepared for the new routes and times to take effect on that date. If you need to make other arrangements with sitters, please be sure to send a letter in writing to your child’s main office for the changes to take effect.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we implement these changes. It is with the safety and best interests of all our students in mind that we continuously striving to improve our transportation department and how we transport our students each day.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call your child’s building or the Transportation Department at 518-828-4360, ext. 2103.
