First day of school transportation delays expected
Welcome back! We look forward to a great start to the 2016-17 school year.
The Transportation Department has been working hard the past few months to finalize bus routes for the upcoming school year.
We ask for your patience on the first day of school, Aug. 31 and Sept. 2 (kindergartners) as there may be delays going to and from school(s). The first few weeks of schools are an adjustment for everyone. Our goal is to provide safe transportation for our students and ensure everyone arrives to their destination in a timely manner.
The first day of school also brings about its own potential delays as parents and friends gather at bus stops to take photos in the morning and at the end of the school day. While our bus drivers will do their best to accommodate for the occasion, it can cause delays for buses to reach school/home. We continue to ask for your patience during this time so that we can accommodate everyone, but ultimately, safe transportation in a timely manner is our main goal.
Also, children in our younger grades, especially kindergartners will not be dropped off unless a parent or responsible adult is there to meet the bus at the designated drop-off location.
Finally, with the start of school motorists will need to adjust their speeds when traveling through school zones. We also have a number of students walking and riding bikes to and from school (please remind children to use the crosswalks). Please proceed with caution and watch out for children.
We look forward to another great year at the Avon Local Schools. Thank you for your continued support.
Bus Routes Updated 8/30/16
Bus Routes posted for 2016/17 school year are "Tentative" bus routes. Transportation is making changes daily to ensure each student in the district is assigned a bus stop. Routes will be updated as needed throughout the beginning of the school year as ridership is established. Kindergarten students are being added and will be completed before the start of school on Friday September 2nd. As always, students should be at bus stop waiting at least 5 minutes before the arrival of the bus assigned to their neighborhood.
Transportation thanks you in advance for your patience and understanding in our efforts to provide safe transportation for the students of Avon Local Schools.
