Bus Schedules 2009-2010

The Transportation Department is an important member of the educational team, which includes the school district and community. We will continue to strive for excellence and are always looking for more efficient ways to improve our operation, while at the same time, placing the safety of our students and team members first. We take seriously the trust and confidence that the parents and community have placed in us to transport what is most precious to us: Our Children.

We are committed to operating safe, clean, and mechanically defect-free buses. Our interaction with students contributes to an atmosphere of learning and sets the stage for a positive climate of learning, which should not be underestimated. An effective and efficient Transportation Department will improve the quality of education for our children and I look forward to working with all to ensure that our mission is accomplished.

School Bus Facts

School buses are the largest mass transit program in the U.S. School buses provide approximately 8.8 billion student trips per year. In contrast, transit buses provide only about 5.2 billion unlinked passenger trips each year in the U.S.

Every school day, some 440,000 yellow school buses transport more than 24 million children to and from schools and school-related activites in the United States. There is no safer way to transport a child than in a school bus. Fatal crashes involving occupants are extremely rare events, even though school buses serve daily in every community - a remarkable 8.8 billion student trips annually.

The Transportation Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences estimates that every year more than 800 school-aged children are killed as passengers in other motor vehicles, or walking or riding bicycles, during "normal school transportation hours." Most of these deaths could be prevented if children rode in school buses. Parents need to know that driving a child to school is not a safety smart decision - hands down, the school bus is the safest way to and from school. Even worse, allowing a child to drive themselves to school, or riding with other teenagers to school, increases the risk of fatality by 10 percent.
