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. 2753 or Operation's Supervisory staff at ext. 7513, 7514 or 7518. 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.

Dispatch can also provide an update on the pickup or drop off time if the bus has already serviced the bus stop in question.
