Get Ready For Back To School

Logistics and Basic Information

When parents register their child at a school, they are asked for information to set up a bus stop for their child.

  • Students are assigned bus stops according to the Bussing Guidelines.
  • Contact your child’s school if you have a change of address. School staff can help arrange a new school bus and bus stop.
  • For students enrolled prior to July 29, stops are established for the first day of school and bus information is mailed to homes in August.
  • Students enrolling after July 29 will be given a temporary bus stop for the first day of school, if available. A permanent bus stop will be assigned within 10 school days. Families will need to transport their child until a stop is created. The school will notify the family of the permanent bus stop prior to its start.

For the First Day of School

  • Help your child get to school on time.
  • In order to be on time, your child should be at the bus stop 5 minutes early each day.
  • Walk with your child to the bus stop on the first day; show your child how to get there. Meet your child at the bus stop in the afternoon and show him or her how to get home.
  • Meet your bus driver. Introduce yourself and your child to the bus driver and remind your child to listen to the driver while on the bus.
