Important Bus Information

School Delay/Closing

In case of extreme weather conditions when regular education buses are not traveling the roads, buses to the Math & Science Center and Calhoun Area Career Center will also not be running. When there is a 2-hour delay called, the morning Math & Science Center bus will not transport students to or from the Center.

Not Riding

If your child will not be riding in the morning, a phone call to the transportation office is very much appreciated. This prevents us from sending a bus to a stop when it is not necessary. When students do not ride for 3 consecutive days without notification to the Transportation Office they will be removed from the route.

Elementary Students

Elementary students (K-5th) will be returned to the Fern Persons Elementary (FPE) Child Care if there is not a parent/guardian present to receive the student at his/her bus stop. Parents will be required to pick up their student there and are responsible for the Child Care fees. If you plan to have an older sibling or other adult meet your child at the stop we will need written permission to release your student to them.

Bus Pass Requirements

If your child (K – 8th) will need to ride a bus other than the one to which he/she is assigned you must notify the school office with the change including the complete address. School office personnel will write a blue bus pass that your child will need in order to get on the bus. Your child will need to hand the bus pass to the driver. No child will be allowed to ride another bus to a different bus stop without a bus pass. Following this procedure is for your child’s safety and helps school staff members to know where your child is in case of an emergency.

Alternative busing arrangements for high school students (9th – 12th), require a parent phone call to the Transportation Office (no later than 2:00 pm) as bus passes are not given to high school students. If the Transportation Office has not received a phone call by 2:00 pm, the student will be dropped at their designated stop.

Transportation Handbook

Transportation rules and policies can be found in the Transportation Handbook and in your building student handbook. The Transportation Handbook can be viewed here.
