- We will be picking up and dropping off students at intersections of gravel and paved roads. If you happen to live on a paved road and currently use busing in the morning and after school, those time may have changed. In order to get an approximate time please refer to the Hard Surface Bus Route schedule found above.
- If you plan on riding from one of the available stops you will need to be there at least 5 minutes before to make sure that we don’t hold up traffic on the roads.
- For safety reasons we will not be letting students off at an intersection if there isn’t someone there to pick them up. If this happens that student will be taken back to their school, where they will have to have someone come and pick them up.
- If Hard Surface Bus Routes are used in the morning they will be used that afternoon as well.
- Hard Surface Bus Routes also apply to the Preschool take home and pick up.
- If you know in advance where you will be riding from please let the driver know or contact the bus garage and we will inform the bus driver.
- If you have any questions please contact the bus garage at 641-236-2715 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
