Frequently Asked Questions!
Our most frequently asked question......... When should my students be out for the bus? Much of that is dependent on where you live. But for the MOST part...
On a normal day High School / Middle School students need to be out looking for the bus by 6:20 in some areas.
High School starts at 7:30 - Middle School starts at 7:40 We drop at High School at 7:15 and at Middle School at 7:25.
Elementary students should be out looking for the bus by 7:35. It very likely won't come that early, but better to be safe until we establish a pattern. Dieck and Elms start at 8:25. Morrish and Syring and Gaines at 8:45
The first day of school is a 1/2 day in the PM - this is the only time we do this in a school year. School starts at each building ABOUT 3 1/2 hours later than normal. So please have your student out looking for the bus about 3 1/2 hours later than normal.
Drop off the first few days... it takes students and teachers more than a minute to get gets loaded on buses the first few days. Please be patient as this is a learning procedure for all of them. It will be a few days to develop a pattern. Making sure your student knows what bus to ride home is extremely helpful. Especially if they ride a different bus morning and afternoon.
Bus colors and routes with Driver names and Bus numbers are available on the links provided. Maps with approximate times are still being compiled. Please be patient.
Please note: Elementary Students that were in a walking area for the 20/21 school year will continue to walk to their closest elementary building. Due to the proximity to Morrish Elementary Linden Place Trailer Park is now in the walking area also.
The 2nd most frequently asked question......... Where is the bus stop?
Trailer Parks, Apartment Complexes and some subdivisions have group stops. If you are unsure where the stop is please refer to the listing below, or ask a neighbor. Most other students will be picked up in front or very near their homes. If you are unsure where the stop is in that situation wait at the end of your driveway and the driver will let you know where the stop will be. If there are several students within a very short distance the stops must be combined.
