During August, September and October, our phone line is very busy. Please assist us in expediting calls by leaving a brief, clear message and allow 48 hours for a response. The Bus Company should be notified if your child will be absent from a mini bus only. You do not need to call if your child will be absent from a regular (big) bus.
Note: Towards the beginning of the school year, parents and guardians should check this page often to verify that route times have not changed. Thank You
2016-2017 School Bus Routes
**If your school's bus routes are followed by the date 8-26-16, then you will know that the routes have been updated. Most schools will be updated with today's date. If today's date does not appear by your school, please check back a little later. Also keep in mind that at the start of each school year, bus routes do change quite a bit due to changes/additions and new students. Please be sure to check back often to make sure that your route times have not changed. Thank you!
Afternoon bus routes: Bus routes will be done in the reverse order in the afternoon since the starting point is the school. You can approximate your child's drop off time by knowing that the buses will usually depart school about 10 minutes after dismissal and all children are safely on board the bus. Please allow extra time at the beginning of the school year until a routine is established.

In Manchester the safety and education of our school children will always be our main priorities. When driving your car, be sure to stop for all school buses when you see the flashing lights and stop sign ajar.
