FAQ ABOUT LATE BUS SERVICE

 

What is late bus service?

 

Late bus service is courtesy busing provided by the district, free of charge for students that stay beyond the end of the school day for extra help, library, clubs, etc. Service is available for students in grades 7th – 12th.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

 

What are the pick up times at each school?

High School    4:45 p.m.
 
 

How is the late bus service organized?

 

The district is divided into eight zones. One bus is assigned to each zone with the exception of zone #8. (Due to high volume usage in Pike Run, two buses have been assigned to zone #8.)  Buses line up at the Upper Middle School at approximately 4:35 p.m.  Students board the buses, and the buses depart at 4:40 p.m.  The first bus for zone #8 proceeds on its late bus route to Pike Run.  Buses for zones 1 through 7 travel to Montgomery High School where they meet up with the second bus for zone #8 at approximately 4:45 p.m.  Once students have boarded the buses, drivers proceed on their assigned routes.  Each zone has a basic route mapped out.  However, based on the daily ridership, routes can vary in length and time.

 

How does my child utilize the late bus service?

 

Every student has been assigned a zone based upon where they live. A student can find out which zone they have been assigned by asking in their school office or by calling the transportation office. Prior to boarding the late bus in the afternoon, the student will be required to print his name and street address on a sign in sheet for their assigned late bus.

 

Where will my child be dropped off and what time should I expect my child?

 

Since only eight buses are servicing the entire school district, students may be dropped off a greater distance from the home, especially if there is a side walk. Students that have a house stop due to a hazardous situation will still have the house stop. Drop off times will vary day to day, based on the ridership. Keep in mind, that the buses do not leave the last school until 5:00 p.m., so your child could be dropped off as early as 5:05 p.m. or as late as 5:50 p.m. depending on where you live.
