First Day of School a success!

We hope your children had a wonderful first day of school! We loved seeing your #BearcatsFirstDay pictures!

Thank you for your continued patience as we make adjustments in an effort to improve traffic conditions and bus wait and ride times.

As a reminder, please make sure that tomorrow (Friday, Aug. 20) morning you are following the updated bus route information that was shared after 1 p.m today. Also, effective immediately, whenever you register your child for bus transportation, they will be in the routing system and assigned a bus only after three full business days have passed. For example, if you register your child for the bus on Friday afternoon, they may begin riding the bus on the following Thursday morning; if you register Wednesday morning, your student may begin riding the bus the following Tuesday morning.

If you have any questions about your child’s transportation or need to make a change to your address for bus transportation, please contact our transportation department at Given the time of year, it is typical that the transportation department experiences a very high volume of phone calls and emails, so we would appreciate your patience.

Free meals everyday for AISD Students!

We will have one free school breakfast and one free school lunch per day per student for all Aledo ISD students this school year thanks to a USDA waiver that allows no-cost meals for the year. Families do not need to fill out a form for free meals; however, if your family has qualified for the Free and Reduced Price meal program in the past or you think your family would qualify now, we ask that you please fill out the online Free and Reduced Meal application anyway at so that you may receive other benefits - including those through Aledo Children’s AdvoCats - this school year. Filling out this form is very important as we do not want an interruption in any additional benefits for your family.
