15-16 Busing Information

Your child's school bus route information will be in mailboxes the week of August 24.  Please watch your mailbox for a yellow postcard with the information.  Student transportation information will also be available on each child's Skyward Family Access account after August 25.

The busing information that is visible in Skyward Family Access as of Friday, September 4, at 4:00 PM, is what will be used for the first two weeks of school.   To ensure a smooth process at the start of the year, we will not be adding or moving any stops until Monday, September 21.  New or additional students will be placed at stops that have already been established.   The Transportation Office will continue to work to update and support safe and efficient transportation for our students as more information is available.
