Bus Schedules - General Information
School bus schedules for all students (Grades 1-12) are generally announced in early- to mid-August of the corresponding school year. Individual bus schedules are posted on the Skyward Family Access Portal.
Note: Bus schedules will only be available online via Skyward; therefore, any parents/guardians, who do not have access to a computer or to the Internet, may contact the Transportation Office directly at (724) 625-1507 to request information regarding an individual student’s bus schedule.
The school bus will stop ONE time at each designated bus stop. The bus will not stop a second time for students who are late. All students are asked to be at their designated bus stop at least five (5) minutes prior to their scheduled pick-up time. All students must ride their assigned bus. No exceptions will be permitted.
