District Provides Update on Transportation Program for Tuesday, October 6

In an effort to continue keeping you informed, all BMS/RHS buses arrived this morning between 7:13 am and 7:27 am.  Also, while all CLS buses arrived on time this morning, although Bus Route #2 arrived later than we want it to and we’ve received feedback from some Route #2 parents that some CLS pick-ups were later than scheduled. All buses departed on time from BMS/RHS and from CLS this afternoon.

We are developing and implementing several strategies to improve scheduling on the handful of routes that are arriving at BMS/RHS in the morning later than we want. We are planning to implement those changes later this week. Parents whose routes or pick-up times will change have been or will be called and will receive a new bus schedule by mail. 

Updates to a few of other routes, including Route #2 are in the works, and parents will be notified when those changes are ready to be made.

The feedback from parents on pick up and drop off times and other issues as they may arise has been very helpful to us. Parents with specific questions, concerns, and/or complaints about their child’s transportation, specifically about their bus route or schedule, ongoing or new, now or in the future, are encouraged to call:
