Parents please review the 2016-2017 Bus Routes for Marietta City Schools especially if your child is changing schools next year. If you do not see a stop for your child close to your residence, please send a Bus Stop Appeal to the Transportation Department. You have until June 30, 2016 to fill out a Bus Stop Appeal Form. After that date no changes will be made to Routes until after the first two weeks of school are completed.
What should parents (guardians) do if their student does not arrive at his/her bus stop?
Parents should contact the Marietta City Schools (MCS) Transportation Department Dispatch Desk at 770.429.3110 ext. 110, 111 or operation's supervisory staff at ext. 101, 102 or 103. Dispatch can usually communicate the name of the missing student to the driver to confirm if the student did indeed board the school bus. If this cannot be confirmed, dispatch will issue an "all call" to all bus routes from the student's school. Parents should also contact their school to determine if the student boarded a bus or is attending an After School Program.
What should parents (guardians) do if the school bus arrives late at the bus stop?
Parents should contact the MCS Transportation Department Dispatch Desk at 770.429.3110 ext. 110, 111 or operation's supervisory staff at ext. 101, 102 or 103 for an update on the bus route and any delays it may have encountered. Dispatch can also provide an update on the pickup or drop off time if the bus has already serviced the bus stop in question. If the bus is more than 10-15 minutes late in the morning, parents should contact the Dispatch Desk for an updated arrival time. MCS Transportation will always run a bus to service a stop even if the bus is going to run late. Breakfast is held for any students arriving late to school aboard a school bus and students are not counted as tardy.
