District Provides Updated Transportation Program Information for Thursday, October 8, 2015

We continue providing information about the District’s transportation program because each and every transportation issue has not yet been resolved, although most have at this point. All BMS/RHS buses arrived this morning between 7:15 am and 7:27 am.  Also, all CLS buses arrived on time this morning as well. All buses departed on time from BMS/RHS and from CLS this afternoon.

We mailed letters to a number of parents this afternoon to implement improvements to several routes regarding pick-up and drop off schedules. We are planning to implement those changes on Tuesday, October 13.  Parents whose routes or pick-up times will change have been or will be called, as well as receive a new bus schedule by mail. New and experienced drivers also are scheduled to begin driving on routes #2 and #11 on Tuesday.

Feedback from parents on pick up and drop off times and other issues continues to be 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:
