Transportation News

THANK YOU to all families, students, and staff for your patience over the last five days as we have adapted to the new 3-tier bus system. Note: there may continue to be slight routing adjustments for bus routes as we welcome new enrollments to our district.


Parents/Guardians - should you have a question about a child's arrival time home after school, please call our office (317-532-6800) to determine if your child's bus was late for afternoon pick-up, which could mean your child will arrive home a bit later than usual. The most efficient way for you to get in touch with someone would be to call the number above.

Car Rider Procedure Reminders

If your student is a car rider in the MORNING, please note the following:
  • You can access Creston Car Rider Procedures for this school year HERE.
  • Students may begin exiting cars around 8:35 a.m.
  • Students will be supervised by CIMS Staff until it's time to enter the building for classes (8:50 a.m.)
  • All cars are expected to follow the directions of school staff to ensure the safety of EVERYONE.

If your student is a car rider in the AFTERNOON, please note the following:


  • Students are not dismissed from school until 3:50 p.m. (grades 5/6) and 3:55 p.m. (grades 7/8).
  • Parents/Cars are NOT permitted to park in the parking spaces or in the neighborhood entrance across the street from CIMS and wait for your child to avoid the car line. All parents/guardians picking up students must wait in the car line and pick up your student on the curb.
  • Please pull all the way forward when you arrive to help with efficiency.
  • The only students who should be crossing the street are those who live in the neighborhood. Otherwise, students will need to wait outside of Door 1 for your car to approach.
