Bus ID Cards


Students who have been identified as needing access to bus services will be given a color-coded ID card with the bus number printed on it. This is the only bus they are permitted to ride.

By the first day of each school year, all students must have an ID to ride the bus. This rule is in place for safely and security reasons. 

Students will always be allowed to ride the bus to school if they have lost or misplaced their ID. There are no "bus passes.” 

To ride the bus after school, students must have an ID. This includes the 4:05 p.m. activity bus. 


Pick-Up Times


Morning pick-up times may be adjusted at the beginning of each school year. 

Students should be at their corner by 7:20 a.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and by 8:30 a.m. on Wednesdays. 

The exact arrival time of a student’s bus may vary due to traffic or weather conditions, but buses will never arrive earlier than 7:20 (or 8:30 on Wednesdays). 

Students should dress appropriately for the outside weather.
