|School Hours & Delays|
The Transportation Department
Our dedicated and experienced staff takes great pride in safely transporting students to and from school and extracurricular events. To do this effectively requires the cooperation of the student and the support of the parents working in conjunction with your bus driver.
The bus rules and guidelines will be sent home with each student. Please take an opportunity to review them with your child. Each student will also receive a general information card which requests your child’s name, address, phone number, school, and grade. Please note if pickup address is different than home address. The Student Information Card must be completed and returned to the bus driver within the first week of school.
Bus arrival times may be somewhat uncertain for the first few days as we monitor and adjust routes according to changes in where students live and the number of students on each route. Please have your child ready at the stop a few minutes earlier than normal.
If you have a kindergarten student, or a student who is new to the bus route, your bus driver will call you with bus stop information the week before school starts.
Some bus numbers have changed, so please check the route information below. If you have any questions concerning bus routes, please contact the Transportation Department at 838-3632.
- If your child is new to our school system and to a bus route, or if changes have been made to your child's bus route, your bus driver will be calling you prior to the first day of school with stop times.
- Please remember pick up times may vary for the first few days of school. It is best to have your child ready for the bus 5-10 minutes prior to your bus arriving.
- As always your child's safety is our top priority. Please remind your children of the importance of safety at the bus stop and complying with bus rules.
Students transported by the Plainfield Community School Corporation will be under the supervision, direction, and discipline of the bus driver. In order to provide for the safe transportation of all students, the following School Board Policy must be observed:
