Bus Routes/School Eligibility
Please check the Route Schedules for your student’s school below. Routing information is posted for the 2018-2019 school year. Slight adjustments continue to be made; therefore, please verify your bus and stop information prior to the start of school. The PM stop time may vary slightly depending upon actual dismissal time from the school especially during the first 10 days of school. Elementary schools need to ensure that all bus riders have orange (8 and under) or green (9 and older) identification tags to help bus drivers identify the students and their proper bus stop. All parents are asked to ensure that their elementary aged children who ride the bus keep the orange and green tags attached to their book bags. This aids the schools and bus drivers in delivering your child to their bus stop.
There will be few changes during the first ten days of school while we consolidate and review all bus stop appeals for nearly 400 bus routes. If ask if you are going to submit an appeal that you do so within the first three days of school so we can hopefully make one change only to each bus route. All Bus Stop Appeal forms that were received by the June deadline date have been reviewed and changes made as necessary. All bus stop changes will appear on new routes posted August 17th. Parents are asked to transport their children to the closest bus stop or to their school if necessary until their appeal is reviewed.
Please be reminded that students should be at the bus stop at least five (5) minutes before the scheduled bus arrival time in the morning for their safety.
Students who are eight years and younger should have a responsible person (13 and older) meet them at their afternoon bus stop. Students eight and under may be returned to Park Street Elementary School, 105 Park Street, Marietta GA for their parents to pick them up. The entrance for the After School Program is on the south side of the building on the lower level nearest the athletic field. You may also use the After School Program at your child’s school on those days you will not be home to pick up your child. Registration is $10 with a daily fee of $7. You will have to call your child’s school and let them know of any changes prior to bus dismissal. For more information on our 8 and under policy, please click link below.
