School bus routes were revised for the 2012-2013 school year to include a walking distance of up to 0.3 of a mile for elementary students and up to 0.5 of a mile for middle/high students.The increase in walking distance was part of the comprehensive budget reduction plan for the 2012-2013 school year.
As routes were adjusted, every pick up site was evaluated for student safety. Parents are asked to check the bus routes carefully prior to the start of school and send students to the bus stop closest to their pick up location.
