Bus routes are updated annually. We have two bus contractors who serve several school districts, so their inventory of drivers and buses can change from year to year. We attempt to be as consistent as possible, but as zones change and traffic patterns are altered due to road construction and other issues, we must change our routes accordingly. Changes to bus routes are posted to the district web site in early June and linked from every school site. We also release information to the local newspaper and send a voice mail reminder to parents about the update being available. As drivers work the routes planned at the beginning of the year and see how many children get on the bus at each stop, slight changes can occur. When the school year begins, any route changes will be forwarded to the affected school(s) and relayed by school administrators, in addition to being noted on the website.
