     SOME QUICK REMINDERS:             

    • We are unable to make changes between August 9 and September 8, 2019. All changes submitted during this time period will be effective September 9th because individual changes impact the entire system changing other bus stop times that have already been communicated to families.
    • All bus changes (after September 8th) take a minimum of three days to process. Please submit bus forms with as much notice as possible.
    • Drop off times are estimated, therefore we ask for your patience the first few weeks of school as our students and staff adjust to the daily routines.
    • Students should be at the stop at least five (5) minutes before the pickup time. Drivers are not permitted to wait for students who are not at the stop on time.
    • Route signs are located in the first bus window (to the left of the door).
    • Drivers are required to take attendance as your student leaves the bus. Please prepare your student to clearly give first and last name when requested.
    • Should you need to make changes, the “Revised Bus Information” form is available at the school or through the District 50 website.
    • Please feel free to stop by the Transportation table to make changes and/or meet our team.

     We look forward to providing your child with a safe and enjoyable ride to and from school.
