Important Information for PK / KG Students
Please have your student wear a tag listing his/her name, address, grade Bus Route Number and school. Many children, at this age, fail to get off at the correct bus stop. Without proper identification it is difficult for the driver to assist them.
Attention all Parents / Guardians
For the first 10 days of school, until Route times are firmly established, please have your student to the bus stop location at least ten minutes prior to scheduled pick-up times. As bus rider-ship increases/decreases, bus stop times and locations are subject to change.
We are happy to announce a new service available to you should you become concerned about your child’s bus running late before or after school.
Instead of calling Dispatch, which is a very busy phone line, you may now call the Transportation Hotline at (772) 978-8199.
During the first few days of school bus stop times may vary. At other times during the school year there may be a substitute driver on the bus, the bus may break down, roads may have detours or rainy weather may occur causing your child’s bus to run late. All late bus information will be posted on the Hotline Number, (772) 978-8199.
Please allow at least 10 minutes past the regularly scheduled stop time before calling.
All students attending the Alternative Center for Education, the Simon Mall Program, or the Sebastian River High School International Baccalaureate Program, please contact your school for transportation assignments.
BUS DRIVERS NEEDED
Training provided. Please Call: (772) 978-8814 or (772) 978-8820.
