Important Bus Information

Federal mandate requires students to wear a face covering while riding the bus to and from school and for field trips or athletic trips. Face coverings can be removed once they disembark the bus at their destination.

Due to continued safety precautions, Building Secretaries will not be issuing Bus Passes for students to ride with friends. This means a student may only ride his or her regular assigned bus route.

School Delay/Closing

In case of extreme weather conditions when regular education buses are not traveling the roads, buses to the Math & Science Center and Calhoun Area Career Center will also not be running. When there is a 2-hour delay called, the morning Math & Science Center bus will not transport students to or from the Center.

Not Riding

If your child will not be riding in the morning, a phone call to the transportation office is very much appreciated. This prevents us from sending a bus to a stop when it is not necessary. When students do not ride for 3 consecutive days without notification to the Transportation Office they will be removed from the route.

Elementary Students

Elementary students (K-5th) will be returned to the Fern Persons Elementary (FPE) Child Care if there is not a parent/guardian present to receive the student at his/her bus stop. Parents will be required to pick up their student there and are responsible for the Child Care fees. If you plan to have an older sibling or other adult meet your child at the stop we will need written permission to release your student to them.

Transportation Handbook

Transportation rules and policies can be found in the Transportation Handbook and in your building student handbook. The Transportation Handbook can be viewed here.
