Reminders for Families

We appreciate the patience of our families and ask them to please remember the following  as we continue to welcome students back to school:

·         Ensure that their students are wearing masks as they board the bus each morning and afternoon.

·         Follow the directions of the bus drivers for seat assignments. (Elementary bus runs may have two students per seat, while middle/high school bus runs will only have one student per seat.

·         Buses will be properly sanitized twice daily – once after the morning route, and once after the evening route.

·         Bus drivers will be equipped with proper PPE, including some disposable masks for students. Drivers will instruct students to wear their masks while riding the bus.

·         As always, please contact your area transportation office for additional information. A contact list is available on the left side of our transportation homepage by clicking “Area Offices”.

Our Mission

“To relentlessly provide services and facilities where students and staff can be safe and successful.”

"I just want to pass on what a great driver we have in our neighborhood. S992 going to Beverly Woods. (I knew her name last year and I'm embarrassed to ask her since I forgot). She is so kind with the kids in what has to be an often thankless job. My kids both left their jackets on the bus last week and she remembered and got them to me this morning. Her safe driving and thoughtfulness makes this mom feel so good about sending little ones off to school. 

Thank you! Kristen
