A Fitting Goodbye
Dear Methacton Family,
Methacton School District is in the process of working to ensure the safe and timely transport of your child(ren) to and from school for the 2017-2018 school year.
Bus stops and routes are currently being reconfigured for the upcoming 2017-18 school year in order to improve the busing experience for all students and take students transitioning to new schools into consideration. A team including First Student management and drivers, district administration, the district’s transportation management and transportation software vendors have been working for months to ensure that these changes are reviewed and tested.
As always, the safety of our students is our top priority. Our plan is to provide students with the safest and most efficient route. All district stops were reviewed in terms of best practice and many cul-de-sacs stops/turnarounds were eliminated in order to improve safety for students on the bus and those waiting at bus stops.
The district will mail letters to families during the third week of July to inform you of your child’s bus stop location. A second letter will be sent the second week of August, including bus assignment, pick up, and drop off times.
As we further prepare for 2017-2018, a list of “frequently asked questions” has been prepared and posted to the transportation services webpage at www.methacton.org/busfaq. If you find that you have additional questions or feedback, please contact the transportation department at 610-489-5036. Additional staff contacts and other information can be found at www.methacton.org/transportation.
Thank you, and enjoy your summer!
Dr. David Zerbe
Superintendent of Schools
