    Bus Stop Requests

    Because of the sheer volume of requests, any stop requests that were submitted before August 1st will be assessed and implemented for the start of school.  

    Any bus stop requests received between August 1st and August 14th will be assessed.  The goal date for implementing these stop requests is September 6th.

    We have to finalize the routes for the bus drivers, so they can practice them before school starts.  The first two full weeks of school, our priority will be assessing and mitigating any overcrowding issues.  Once that work is done, we will start implementing more stop requests on September 6th. 

    Bus Stop Information

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.  Please utilize the School Bus Lookup Tool which is designed for students, parents and schools to locate their bus stop. Stop times are subject to change, please review your stop times periodically.  Ensure you arrive at your bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time.
