 2016-2017

Welcome to the Georgetown School District Transportation website. 


For the 2016-2017 year, we have begun using a web-based system called "Traversa" to help us determine eligibility and create bus routes. 

Beginning Monday October 3rd, the MHS buses  and routes are changing. In order to rectify some significant issues at Penn Brook with students arriving home very late, the district is returning the MHS routes to the ones that were in past for the past several years and worked well for everyone.  The students will ride the same bus they did last year with the same driver and follow the same route. These new routes will be posted on the district website Transportation Page on Friday September 23rd for your review. If you are riding the bus for the first time this year, find your street on the list and go to the closest stop. If changes need to be made on a case by case basis we can discuss them but beginning Monday October 3rd we are using the stops from last year to start. This affects both MHS and elementary buses because the pick- up and drop of times will change. Hopefully this change will make things better for everyone and we thank you for your patience. 

The GMHS bus routes are posted HERE.


 
Eligibility can be determined in two ways:

1. The student lives 1.5 miles or more from the school of attendance.
2. The student lives in a previously established safety zone.

Here are the steps you need to take ONLY if your child will require a bus pass for the following year:


  1. Fill out the bus pass application completely. The Application can be returned directly to the Superintendent's Office, or filled out online. To fill out the online Application, you will need the information from your mailed form. Access the Application HERE.
  2. Return the application in person to the Superintendent’s Secretary before the last day of school.
  3. Obtain your child’s bus pass.
  4. Attach the bus pass to your child’s backpack before the beginning of the next school year.
