As the new school year begins, we want to welcome all students. The following information is provided to assist students in boarding buses for school. During the first couple of weeks, parents should have their children ready early until time schedules are more accurately set, due to new students moving into the district.
When the number of student riders on each route are known, some additional adjustments may have to be made after the start of school. Drivers, bus numbers, and routes have changed, so please, check below to determine which bus your children will ride this school term. We strive to make the routes as efficient as possible to get students to school and home in the shortest and safest way possible. After reviewing the routes, if you have any additional questions, please call Joe Obermark, Transportation Director at 573-732-4424 or Anthony Pratt, Bus Supervisor, at 573-732-4813. You may also call the school offices at 732-5365 (Elementary), 732-4424 (Middle School), or 732-5615 (High School) for emergency only bus passes. All other bus pass requests should follow procedures outlined in the student handbooks. Please take time to remind your young children of an alternate place to go if they sense anything out of the ordinary when the bus drops them off in the evening, and also for special arrangements during inclement weather or early dismissal from school. This will help your child stay calm and know what to do if their routine is planned out in advance. We all have to work together to ensure the safety of our children.
