Check the Updated Bus Route Schedules!
Students who take the bus to school should head over to the Bus Route web page to see an updated schedule and assigned bus routes. Your times and locations closest to your residence may have changed.
We appreciate your patience and flexibility during this time! We are experiencing challenges in ensuring adequate bussing support for our students and families due to the nationwide shortage of CDL certified drivers. We have been in active conversations with our transportation partners and exploring other avenues to resolve this issue as soon as possible. If you are available to help our school community during this time and are interested in assisting in our transportation efforts, please contact Mike Tunnell at michael.tunnell@firstgroup.com.
