TRANSPORTATION

  • Our office hours are 7:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday

    Each day Washington County Schools Transports more than 13,000 of our community's school children.
    The safety and security of our riders is our number one priority!

    You can assist us by kindly remembering the following:

    • Be prompt. Your child should be at their assigned bus stop five (5) minutes prior to the scheduled pick up time. Once a school bus is moving, the driver is not permitted to stop for the boarding of any child in-between bus stops or after departing from the school.

      Additional information to share with your child:
      • Go directly to your assigned bus stop.
      • Dress for the weather. Wear clothing that is safe, visible, and weather appropriate.
      • Carry your belongings in a backpack or book bag.
      • Do not cross major roadways.
      • Show respect and care for all individuals on the bus as well as the property of others.
      • Stay on the sidewalk when available.
  • Be patient. Please allow for some fluctuation in pickup and drop-off times, particularly during the first two weeks of school. Throughout the school year, daily pick-up and drop-off times may fluctuate due to weather, traffic, construction, etc.

  • Be prepared for changes. Following the initial adjustment period (until approximately the third week of school) updates to your child’s route may be necessary due to some of the following circumstances: student additions or withdrawals, address changes, major construction, etc.  Route changes will be communicated to those affected. Please keep in mind, updates may happen throughout the school year and will be communicated accordingly.

  • Change of address. If you are moving to a new home within the district, you must contact the School where your student is going and have them change the address in Power School. Transportation Department cannot change your address.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

 We are pleased to be transporting your child to and from school this year.

We are very proud of the safety record of our school buses and the professionalism of our transportation team.

It is important that our drivers are able to concentrate on driving the route safely. If anything makes your child feel unsafe at the bus stop or on the bus ride, please contact us at the transportation department, rather than trying to discuss it at the bus stop. We are deeply committed to the safety of your child as well as all our community’s children. Thank you!
