Please Note: Bus Information is updated each night. Changes will be reflected on the following day. Bus Information is not viewable in the mobile app or mobile website at this time. 
The bus times given are estimated, so please have your child/children out at the assigned bus stop 10-15 minutes early the first few weeks of school.

On a daily basis, your child should always be ready and waiting at the bus stop at least 5 minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. By the middle of September, the bus driver will have the route established and this will provide you with a more accurate scheduled time.

As a reminder, please do not call the Transportation Department regarding school bus stop change requests until after September 20th. During the first several weeks, bus routes may change for various reasons. We will not be able to honor any new requests until after September 20 when all routes are firmly established. If you have not yet established a Parent Portal account, please visit the school district’s website at for instructions.
