Transportation FAQs

  • Are you providing transportation?

    Yes, transportation will be provided via normal bus routes.

    What safety protocols have been implemented to keep students safe while on the bus?

    The District Transportation Department worked with both Krapf's and On the Go Kids to implement safety procedures in accordance with the Chester County Health Department Guidelines.

    • Drivers and students will be required to wear a face covering while on the bus at all times.
    • Face masks will be available with the driver for any student who forgets their mask.
    • Students will be assigned seats on the bus.
    • Family members riding the same bus will be seated together upon request, otherwise, students are seated by grade level.
    • Bus windows will be open to allow fresh air to circulate (weather permitting).

    Will transportation be provided to/from a Childcare provider?

    Yes, as in the past, the District will provide childcare busing in accordance with our daycare policy.

    • Pick-up/drop-off points must be within the assigned busing area of the public school the student attends or close to the existing busing route of the nonpublic school the child attends.
    • Students are permitted only one pick up location in the morning, whether at home or daycare, and one drop off location in the afternoon, whether home or daycare. 

    How do I arrange transportation to/from a childcare provider?

    Requests for child care busing must be submitted by completing the Bus Stop Request for Child Care form. Copies of the form are also available in every school office. The parent must return the completed form to the school the child is attending. The school office retains the original form and forwards a copy to the Transportation Department office.

    Can my child ride a different bus to a friend's house?

    No, students may only ride on their assigned bus from their assigned bus stops. Bus passes to ride to or from school on a different bus will not be allowed as a safety procedure.
