What to Expect at Start of School


  • Letters will be mailed to eligible students with route information starting July 21. If you do not receive a letter by July 27, please contact the Transportation Department at (520) 225-4800.
  • Routes can take up to three weeks to be established at the beginning of school due to the volume of new students enrolling.
  • Routes are subject to change as new riders are added to routes and students who are not using the bus are taken off. This is especially true during the first 3-4 weeks of every semester.
  • Please have your child at his or her designated bus stop 10 minutes early to account for minor changes to the route.
  • The bus driver and/or monitor will notify the students of any route changes of 10 minutes or greater.
  • All times are approximate, and you may expect delays the first few days of school. By the end of the second week schedules should be adjusted to a consistent time frame.

Pre K

  • You will be notified of your child's bus stop information by phone the week before the start of school.
