    Parents and staff:

    Transportation has heard you and we are taking action! Effective Tuesday, September 7, 2021, District bus schedules will be adjusted to arrive slightly later in the morning. (Times will vary by route.) There will also be route updates which include address changes, parent bus stop requests, and route consolidations. After listening to everyone involved, arrival times have been changed to support students, teachers and families. Routes will be adjusted to coordinate student arrival times with teacher arrival times.

    The adjustment will allow students to depart the buses and walk into their classrooms with additional time to enjoy breakfast or grab ‘n go snacks.
    You will be receiving correspondence from your school when your child comes home today, Friday, September 3 with information specific to your child’s bus route. A digital copy of this information will also be sent, so please keep an eye on your email.

    With the bus driver shortage, the beginning of the school year has not gone as smoothly as any of us would like. I appreciate your patience and support as we continue to work together to improve transportation services during these challenging times.

    Please do not hesitate to contact the transportation division at 314-633-5107 if you have any questions. Again, the new routes will go into effect this coming Tuesday, September 7th.

    Sincerely,

    Toyin Akinola
