Bus Routes

Bus Routes (pdf)

Please have you children at the bus stop three minutes prior to their bus stop time.

If your children are not getting off at their own bus stop, you will need to send a note indicating the address where they are going (please don’t say grandma’s house), how long they need to go there (everyday, on this day only, daily, or every Monday). Please sign and date the note and include a phone number in case we need to reach you. A student who does not have a note will be sent to his or her home on the bus.

Inclement Weather

When the weather is bad (usually extreme snow or ice), our auto-dialer calls families in the morning to ensure they know of schedule changes. In addition, be sure to tune into the television and / or radio stations listed below to see if the schools in the Sisters School District are closed. If schools are closed or delayed, the decision is made between 5:00 and 5:30 a.m. by district officials and reported to the news media.
