As we begin another school year I wanted to remind you about some of our policies for the bus.
When a last minute change to your child’s transportation arrangement occurs, it is important that you let our school office know. This includes Mom/Dad picking them up (when they usually ride the bus), another person picking them up (sitter, relative, or friend) or any other change that we need to be aware of. It is important to call the office so that we can ensure that everyone gets the message and your child gets where they need to be. When we have not heard from you at the end of the school day, we will assume that they are following their normal routine. Please call the school office directly at 937-645-6714 with changes. You will be asked if you have informed transportation. If not, you will be asked if you want to be transferred to transportation. Someone is always available to answer that phone and check the voicemail on that phone.
Thank you for your help to lessen confusion at the end of a school day.
We have been notified by V.A.T. that any requests for changes in your regular bus pick up and/or drop off locations will require a 3 day notice. This has been our policy for the last several years. In the past we have tried to be as accommodating as possible. However, when we change one route for one student, this affects every other student on that route. Therefore no exceptions will be made to the 3 day notice rule.
We apologize for the inconvenience; however, we need the time to make the changes to the bus routes and notify families of any changes to times.
