Student Drop Off and Dismissal Process Parent Survey

Click HERE for the survey

In an effort to improve our student drop-off and dismissal processes, we are asking families to provide information relevant to their experiences this school year. While safety is top priority, we also understand that efficiency is a concern with the high volume of student drop-offs and pick-ups. 

Keep in mind, that official school hours are from 9:20AM (8:50AM Drop-Off) to 3:35PM each day.

Bus Routes List for the 2017-2018 Year Available

This year, most students* will receive a letter during Back-to-School Orientation which gives the child’s bus stop and pick-up time. New this year, the letter will also include the afternoon drop-off time.

* Students who submitted a transportation form before Aug. 25 and were registered as of Aug. 26.

NOTE:  Schedules might vary as much as 15 minutes during the first few weeks of school.  For this reason, it is recommended that students be at the bus stop in the morning at least 15 minutes before the listed pick-up time.

 Please click on your child’s school to find a bus stop near your home.


The route number will look different.  The group of numbers before the period is the school code. The numbers after the period is the route number.

  • For example,  King’s Fork Middle School’s coded is 393.
  • A route listed as 393.001 is KFMS Route 1, which is the morning route.
  • KFMS Route 101 will be listed as 393.101 — and it includes the same exact stops as the morning’s Route 1, but in reverse when taking students home in the afternoon.
