School Bus

Transportation Update

  • Summer School routes will be available June 12, 2024. 

    Due to continued staffing shortages, families can expect intermittent delays in student transportation for the remainder of the school year. Daily messages will no longer be disseminated. If your child’s(ren’s) school(s) will be significantly impacted, you will receive a Blackboard message from your child’s(ren’s) school(s). We recognize and understand that the shortage of bus drivers may have caused an inconvenience to our families, and we are continuing to work diligently to resolve it. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
