Population – Once again, we are faced with a shortage of available, qualified school bus drivers. With that, we will be operating under much the same methods as the 2018-2019 school year. Our primary goal is to SAFELY transport our students to and from school in the most comfortable way. To do this, we need the assistance of the riders, and from time to time, parents. While we won’t have assigned seats due to the population on our buses, we may request older riders ride in the front of the bus to assist with managing younger riders. Understand, this is simply a way for us to help the younger riders learn the proper manners and actions they will need to ride the school bus safely. IF there is an emergency and the bus driver is incapacitated, older riders will be of great benefit to assist with any possible evacuation procedures.
Registration/Changes - To register your rider or make changes to your information throughout the year, please contact the campus your rider attends. Drivers are not responsible for making changes to routes, and any information must go through the administration at the campus your rider attends. Please, DO NOT give a note to the driver as they have enough to manage without the administrative responsibility to ensure your message gets to the proper people.
