- Routes will be available in PowerSchool on Tuesday, May 28, 2019
- We will attempt to use existing bus stops when possible.
- Where existing stops are not possible to use, new stops will be established considering safety, efficiency, economy and equity and will follow the distances, below. Stops may be made closer for reasons of safety. Every effort will be made to maintain the distances as listed below. However, few exceptions may occur. Please note that these are maximum walking distances; the average walk distances will be considerably less.

- Kindergarten bus stops will be determined by enrollment and geography prior to the end beginning of Summer School
- Buses will not be routed into dead-ends, culs-de-sac or other streets that require a three-point turn or backing maneuver to exit unless the alternative bus stop would present an unusual safety hazard. For students located in these areas, community or corner stops will be provided.
- Buses will not be routed on private roadways or on roads not maintained by the local, county or State governments.
OTHER ROUTING CONSIDERATIONS
The order of pick up and drop off of students is designed to be most efficient and within the shortest possible time. Students who are first on in the morning will not be necessarily be the first off in the afternoon it it is less efficient way to run the route. In general, the farther students live from school, the longer their bus ride will be. The length of the bus ride is not determined by the distance from school, but by the number of stops made. Every effort will be made to keep route times at approximately 30 minutes not to exceed 45 minutes per route.
Bus arrival times may differ due to circumstances beyond the driver's control. Heavy traffic, vehicle accidents and weather can affect the driver's arrival time. Students should be out at their bus stops at least five (5) minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time.
