Good afternoon Streetsboro Families!
School’s almost in session, and we’re excited to see you first thing Wednesday morning. Please pay careful attention to information about school buses, and how to make getting to and from school successful.
First, a notice about routing, and times. Our routing software builds in some slack to allow for more flexibility in routing options, and likely does not reflect the actual time to the minute. It will take at least a week or more to adjust with new class-loads, additional students, and road conditions. All of our scheduling cannot take into account traffic patterns each day, or any other delay, road constructions, etc.
Second, a quick reminder about the bus stop itself. Please make sure you’re at the designated stop at least 10-15 minutes before your scheduled pickup time. We are not able to send buses back to pick you up, so please plan accordingly.
We expect that the first two weeks will run much slower than the rest of the year, and we ask for your patience in this process. It is not unique to Streetsboro – most schools take a while in the fall to get it right.
Third, during the first couple of days, our drivers will spend some time with students refreshing topics like how to board a bus safely, what to do once on the bus, and how to exit the bus successfully, and where the designated place of safety at the bus stop is located.
And lastly, over the weekend you are encouraged to check your morning pickup time in our online system, available on the transportation website. Please keep in mind that we reserve the right to make changes to this information as we continue to adapt to the changing needs of the student population.
Your login information is your student ID for both username and password, and you are free to set another password after you login the first time. If you don’t know your student ID, please contact the school building directly, not the transportation office. You can also check your Final Forms account for the student ID.
Thank you, and have a ROCKET weekend! Don’t forget to join us at the Ice Cream Social on Sunday between 2 – 4 PM.
