    Welcome back students and parents to the 2016-2017 school year.  We have been very busy this summer working on routes and rerouting some old routes.  You will notice a few changes on some bus and none on other.  Please take the time to attend each of your students Open House to find out more information and meet your drivers. 


    One of the most notable changes that you could see on some morning routes will be picking up all grade levels on one bus.  Most of this routes will be elementary with middle school students.  So sibling can board the bus together.  In the afternoons, elementary students will be taken home and then Middle/High students will be picked up and returned home.  Areas that are affected by these changes are; New Clinton Road Area, Joycliff Road Area, Kingsview, Confederate Drive Area, East Virginia Ave/Lane, Pecan, Yukon, Largo Area, Henderson Road, Hampton Lakes, Dolly/MLK Area, Stone Gable, Gray Garden, Saw Mill Quarters, StoneBrook, Jackson Heights, Washburn Drive/Stewart Ave Area, Hidden Lakes, Hwy 18 Connector, Tunerwoods Road/Aultumn Road Area.  


    Students living off Highway 57 that attend Wells Elementary and Clifton Ridge Middle School will all ride the same bus.  Students in the Juliette/Piedmont/Jarrell Plantation and Hwy18 West from Upper River Road to Monroe County will all be riding together.  Those students will attend Dames Ferry, Gray Station and Jones County High/NGA.  


    We have also added an additional route for River North Subdivision students attending Dames Ferry.   From the front gate on the Bibb County side of River North Blvd. to the River North Circle, students will continue to ride bus 44.  Students living from the back gate on the Upper River end of River North Blvd then on River North Circle and back out to the back gate will ride bus 90.  This will help tremendously with the overcrowded bus and student behavior.


    We know that the first two week of student transportation has many ups and downs.  With teamwork and open communication we can overcome many problems.  Again we encourage each of you to attend Open House to meet your student’s bus driver.  I believe that when a driver meets and speaks with a parent on a good note for the first time it gives a greater foundation if problems arise. 


    Thank you for trusting your student’s safety to us.  We look forward to a wonderful 180 days of transporting our future!
