Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Thank you for your patience with changes to bus transportation. We have worked with our local police, our transportation director, bus drivers and principals to create a new bus plan that will better accommodate families and students.

 

NEW BUS ROUTE SCHEDULE BEGINS ->   Wednesday, August 16, 2017

 

The new bus schedule means that school start and end times will be changed. Please find new school hours below:

AM Drop off 7:15 AM

BUS SCHEDULES       UPDATED

Bus numbers have been assigned to Family Access in Skyward. Within the next 24 hours, a school messenger voicemail will be sent to parents/guardians with a pickup time range like in previous years. For questions and assistance, please contact your school’s secretary or contact us at busquestions@msdmartinsville.org.

 

WALKERS

We were able to assign buses to many elementary school walkers living in Martinsville city limits. We have reduced the designated walking area but unfortunately, could not accommodate all students. Please check Skyward for bus number assignments. If there is no bus information listed, a bus was not assigned, and the student would be considered a walker.

 

For students living in Brooklyn city limits and attend Brooklyn STEM, all students were assigned to buses. Bus numbers have been added to Skyward. A school messenger voicemail will also be sent to parents/guardians within 24 hours with pickup information.

 

For students living in the Paragon city limits and attend Paragon Elementary, all students will be included to buses. For Paragon students, bus number assignments will be added soon to Skyward, and a messenger call will be sent to parents/guardians as well.
