District News

LETTER (English):

Hello Parents!

While we know it may be too early for you to start thinking about the next school year, our transportation department is already busy creating bus routes and selecting bus stops for the start of school in August.

If you have moved, please make sure to notify your child’s school of your new address by July 17th, so that your student is assigned to the correct bus.

If you move after July 17th, you must still update your address with the school, but your student will not be assigned to a bus as routes are frozen, so our drivers can bid on them and learn them.

If your child is not assigned to a bus, one of two things will happen:

  1. If there is an established stop near your new home, and it is the stop where your child will be permanently assigned, the school will provide a bus pass during the first week of school.
  2. If there is not an established stop near your new home, you will be assigned one after August 29th.

Due to student transfers, new student enrollment and to determine actual ridership, the District does not make changes to routes during the first three weeks of school.

We understand this may create hardships for some at the beginning of the school year, but this process eliminates multiple bus stop changes that could be even more frustrating and confusing. 

We will release stop information two weeks prior to school starting and you can check the information on our website:

We appreciate your patience so that we may have the smoothest bus transportation program possible.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s school.




LETTER (Spanish):

¡Hola padres!

Aunque sabemos que puede ser muy temprano para que comience a pensar en el próximo año escolar, nuestro departamento de transportación ya está ocupado creando rutas de autobuses y seleccionando paradas de autobuses para el inicio de clases en agosto.

Si se ha mudado, asegúrese de notificar a la escuela de su hijo su nueva dirección antes del 17 de julio para que su estudiante sea asignado al autobús correcto.

Si se muda después del 17 de julio, todavía debe actualizar su dirección con la escuela, pero no se le asignará un autobús a su estudiante ya que las rutas están congeladas para que nuestros conductores puedan obtener más información sobre ellas.

Si su hijo no está asignado a un autobús, sucederá una de estas dos cosas:

1) Si hay una parada establecida cerca de su nuevo hogar, y es la parada a la que se asignará permanentemente a su hijo, la escuela le proporcionará un pase de autobús durante la primera semana de clases.
2) Si no hay una parada establecida cerca de su nuevo hogar, se le asignará una después del 29 de agosto.

Debido a las transferencias de estudiantes, la inscripción de nuevos estudiantes y para determinar el número de pasajeros reales, el Distrito no realiza cambios en las rutas durante las primeras tres semanas de clases.

Entendemos que ésto puede crear dificultades para algunos al comienzo del año escolar, pero este proceso elimina múltiples cambios en las paradas de autobús que podrían ser aún más frustrantes y confusos.

Daremos a conocer información sobre la ruta del autobús dos semanas antes del inicio de la escuela, y puede obtener la información en nuestro sitio web:

Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en comunicarse con la escuela de su hijo.
