***SUMMER SCHOOL ROUTES WILL BE AVAILABLE ONLINE THE WEEK OF JUNE 12, 2017. SUMMER SCHOOL ROUTE INFORMATION IS BEING PRINTED TODAY, JUNE 14TH AND WILL BE MAILED HOME JUNE 14TH.******
FIRST DAY OF SUMMER SCHOOL IS JUNE 19th.
The Transportation Department's main mission is to provide Safe and Efficient service. We travel roughly the distance from Miami, Florida to San Francisco, CA and back daily. Our District covers 400 square miles and our goal is to provide the safest route to and from school.
Per school board policy, students living further than two (2) miles from school will be provided transportation to and from school. Kindergartners that live further than one (1) mile from school will be provided transportation. If your child is not eligible for transportation, you may fill out the Open Seat Rider Request form. This form allows parents to sign up for transportation of those students that live within the 2 mile walk zone of each school. This is based upon open seats available on the bus and the students will be routed to the closest stop on the route.
Also, Please review bus loading and unloading safety with your child. Please remind your children the dangers of the bus stop. As a bus approaches a stop, remind children to stand back until the bus comes to complete stop and the driver has opened the student entrance door. Children should NEVER retrieve a back pack that they may have dropped without notifying the driver FIRST. If your child has to cross the street, they need to wait until the bus driver waives them across.
