Early dismissals
Scheduled early dismissal dates and times may be found in the district calendar, within individual school newsletters and often on school lunch menus. If you need to make alternate arrangements for your child's drop-off locations on these days, please do so in advance through your child's individual school. Stay informed about early dismissals resulting from inclement weather

What to do if the bus is late
A past district study indicated that most buses are late for five reasons:

Traffic delays

Weather delays/road conditions

Delays caused by waiting for children

Delays caused by substitute drivers unfamiliar with a route

Delays caused by mechanical problems

Please do not call the Transportation Office unless the bus is more than 10 minutes late.

In order to shorten transportation time for students and make sure buses keep on schedule, students should wait outside at the bus stop five minutes before their bus is supposed to arrive. A one-minute delay at 20 stops adds 20 minutes onto a bus ride!

Note: In order to stay on schedule, drivers CANNOT return to pick up students who have missed their bus.
