Bus Fleet

Parents,

As we near the halfway point of the school year, it has become necessary to make some bus routing changes. These are never easy choices to make, but it all comes down to the number of students we bus compared to the number of staff we employ. In order to be as efficient as possible with taxpayer dollars, we will be eliminating one bus route at this time and shifting its stops around to two different buses.

We are asking for your patience the first few days of the new routes while drivers get used to the changes and we make adjustments as needed.

Effective Monday, November 22nd, the following changes will take place:

  1. Bus 17 will replace bus 18.  Bus stop locations and times will remain the same.
  2. The route that bus 17 previously ran will be divided between buses 9 & 29.   
  3. Stop locations for buses 9 and 29 will remain the same, but times may change slightly. Watch for a slip of paper coming home with more information about your specific change. 
  4. Bus 7 has a new driver, please be patient while she adjusts to the change and we make any needed adjustments to the route.

Thank you in advance for your for patience while we work through these changes!

Parents,

All of us in the Indian Lake Schools’ transportation department want to welcome everyone back for another year!  

This has been a summer of change for the department.
We will employ three fewer bus drivers, and run two less bus routes for the new school year. As a result, many routes have had changes.   

Please be sure to check the postcard you’ll soon receive for any bus stop location and time changes. This info will also be posted at the open house events, and the building secretaries have access to the bus info as well.

Please remember that the stop times listed are only estimates, not precise.   Once the drivers becomes familiar with the many changes they will be seeing, times will become steady. Please bear with us as we make these adjustments.

If your student had an alternate bus stop assignment, it should have carried over to the new school year.  Our data management software provider made major upgrades this summer, so it’s very possible that some of the info didn’t convert as planned.  

Just like last year, only one new alternate stop will be permitted this year.  Please choose carefully when submitting the alternate stop request form available on this page or at your child’s school.

If you have any questions about busing, feel free to email me at [email protected]
