Annual bus routes

School bus

All families are mailed cards in late August telling them their child’s estimated bus pickup time and drop off time. Please check over these cards and do not assume the pickup locations and times are the same as last year.

Please be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes in advance in the morning, especially at the beginning of the school year. Assume the bus will drop off students within a 5-10 minute window in the afternoon.

After the beginning of the school year, you will get a good idea of when the bus will arrive each day.

For our children’s protection

Remember the safety laws

It is illegal to pass a bus displaying its flashing red lights

These lights are displayed when students are getting on or off the vehicle. This law is strictly enforced, and all violators shall be fully prosecuted.

A reminder to motorists…

School buses discharging or taking on passengers on school property fall under the same laws as buses on public roads.

Idling school buses on school grounds

State law requires school districts to take steps to minimize the idling of the engines of school buses and other school vehicles on school grounds. While students are boarding and departing school buses, the engine should be turned off. Students should be instructed about the importance of getting on and off buses in an orderly and efficient fashion to minimize loading and unloading time. Bus engines should also be off while parked at sporting events and other school activities. Exceptions to this “no idling” policy can be made in cases of emergency, mechanical issues or for necessary heating.
