The start of school brings a very busy time of year in the transportation office. To help us get a quick response to your call please supply as much information as possible with your message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.
Please contact the bus company directly if your child rides a mini bus and will not be riding that day. Also, please have your child out at the bus stop ten minutes prior to the scheduled stop time, especially in the beginning weeks of school or until your child's bus route has been established. Be sure to check the bus schedules frequently as all routes are subject to change especially in the first months of school.
All Preschoolers, Head Start, and Kindergarten thru Grade 2 students MUST have an adult with them while waiting for the bus in the AM and an adult must receive the student in the PM.
If a parent(s) chooses to allow drop off of a Preschooler, Head Start, or Kindergarten thru Grade 2 student to an older sibling, the parent must submit this authorization in writing to the school.
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

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.
