The Transportation Department is busy preparing for the start of another school year! We are excited to see familiar faces and make new friends on our routes.
Bus route information is now available to families in their Skyward Parent Portal. Once you’ve logged in, select “Busing” from the menu on the left side to view the bus number, stop location, and arrival and drop off times for your students. Please keep in mind that adjustments can continue to be made, so we ask that you log in to check for changes the night before school starts.
If you need to make a change to your transportation arrangements, please submit a completed Student Transportation Information form (STI) and return it to your school building or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All changes do require 2 business days to take effect. This form is linked here for your convenience.
One vital task of the Transportation Department is establishing bus routes that provide for the safest and most efficient way to and from school. As you most likely know, the main east/west route into and out of central campus at Route 47 and Plato Road is closed due to the construction of a roundabout. Buses arriving to and leaving central campus for the east side of the school district will travel on the posted detour route which will increase travel time. The construction project is projected to be completed by the end of November; however, until then we know that the travel time of some afternoon buses will be increased. The Transportation Department is working with the affected schools to make staging arrangements so that students can be loaded safely and efficiently for their bus ride home. Following the first full week of busing, our department will analyze the continued impact of the road closure and adjust routes accordingly. We look forward to a great year, and safe travels.
