Bus Information

Summit School District will use as our official time reference. Radio stations also utilize a global time system and are good resources to set your home clocks if you do not have access to the internet.

It is recommended that students riding the bus arrive at the bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled bus stop time, to allow for slight variances in clocks.

In the morning, the bus will not leave a stop before the scheduled time. Once it arrives at the stop, and the door closes, it will not stop a second time.  PLEASE do not chase after a school bus, as
this is a huge safety concern.

The afternoon drop off times are only approximate and if there are no riders for a stop, the bus will not stop there. Parents picking up their child at a bus stop should plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before the scheduled drop off time. Children, particularly the younger ones, will not be released from the bus if the driver feels there is a safety concern. At that time, attempts will be made to contact parents. If unsuccessful, the child will be taken back to his or her school.  Please remember buses are allowed to stop only at designated bus stops.
It is our policy that all Pre-K students are met by a parent or an authorized adult who is 18 or older. Kindergarten students must be met by a parent, authorized adult or older sibling (care giving ability) at the bus stop. If the party is not at the bus stop prior to the bus arriving, your student will be returned to the school.

You must submit to the students school as well as the Transportation Department three (3) names and their phone numbers of members approved to pick up the student. If a Kindergartner is  walking with sibling(s) a Kindergarten waiver form must be filled out and signed by the parent and returned to the students school as well as the Transportation Department, before the student is allowed to walk home with their sibling. 

In the case of inclement weather, the decision for a 2-hour delay or school cancellation will be made by 6:00 am. Please be patient with our school bus drivers and bus stop arrival times.
For notification of school delays and cancellations, parents are encouraged to join the Summit County Alert Network.  You may also listen to the local radio stations or call the Transportation Information Line at 970-368-1777.
