2018-2019 School Year

Welcome to another great school year! We hope you had a relaxing 
summer. At the Bus Garage, we are busy creating our routes.  Bus drivers 
will contact bus families, with estimated arrival times, before the 
first day of school.  As we start to get ready, I would like to take a 
moment to review important transportation information: 

Who do I call? 
Morning Pickup changes - If your student will not be riding, please notify your bus driver or call the Transportation Dept. at: 641.969.4248 
Afternoon dismissal changes - Please contact your building secretary at least one hour before school dismissal. 
Open Enrolled families: A responsible person must be at the pick-up and drop-off location daily. Open enrolled students WILL NOT be left alone at the open enrollment bus stops. If you are questioning whether you will make it to the stop in time, please call the Transportation Dept. so we can contact your child’s driver.  
Lost Items - please contact your bus driver or building secretary. 

As the weather changes: We live in Iowa - that means that the weather can change very quickly, please remember the following: 

  1. Arrive at the stop a minimum of 5 minutes before the scheduled pick-up time.

  2.  Give the bus 15 minutes past drop off time before calling your building secretary or Transportation Dept. 

  3. Make sure your child has dressed appropriately for the weather if they have to wait outside or walk any distance.

  4. Inclement weather delays will be sent to families via the ALL CALL system, text, email, social media, local radio and television stations.  Please watch for these changes.

When at the schools:  

Please remember to not park in the designated bus loading zones. When we 
cannot pull our buses into those zones, we cannot drop off and pick up 
students.  Even if you think you will only be a moment, please park in 
the vehicle parking lots. Thank you!
