Transportation

Dear Parent or Guardian,

At left find information about 2018-19 routes and stops, including approximate pick-up and drop-off times.  Please have your child at the assigned bus stop 10 minutes before the scheduled pick-up time and allow up to 10 minutes beyond the scheduled time for the bus to arrive. In the afternoon, both Hagan and Nassau elementary buses will depart from the schools between 3:00 and 3:10 p.m. Total Transportation is the bus company.

During the first few weeks of school, delays may be possible as students adjust to their schedules. We ask for your patience during this time. After that period, you will receive notification from our automated school messaging system if a bus is running late by 15 minutes or more.

It is important to note that it is our policy to return a student to school when a parent or guardian is not present at the bus stop during afternoon dismissal for those Nassau and Hagan students who are not met at the bus stop. Parents will be called to come to the school to pick up their child.

Thank you,

Doreen Wright

Director of Transportation

Primary Grades K-2 School Procedure for a Child Who Misses Getting Off the Bus at an Assigned Stop

If a student fails to get off the bus at his or her assigned stop or if a parent or guardian who is usually at the stop is not there, the bus driver will keep the student on the bus for the remainder of the bus run. Upon completion of the bus run, the driver will attempt to bring the child back to the bus stop. If the parent or guardian is still not available to receive the child, the driver will bring the student back to the school. The school will keep the student until the parent or guardian can be contacted.
