Possibility for Bus Route Modifications

A message from First Student


Depending on daily staffing levels, FS may have to adjust some school bus routes. While this allows us to provide transportation to as many students as possible, it could result in delays in pick-up and drop-off times for school and activity trips. Some students also may be temporarily assigned a different bus to ride.


FS will provide notification about any route changes to your child’s bus as soon as possible, so families can plan accordingly.


Thank you for your patience and understanding.
