Transportation director John Mann recently posted the Lancaster school bus routes for the 2017-18 academic year. The official bus routes, if changed, will be posted at the school’s front entrance by 5 p.m. Sunday, September 3.
These routes were established with the transportation forms used at registration August 14 and 15. The buses are scheduled to be full and Mann emphasized that bus notes to ride other buses will not be accepted this year. If a student does not ride from/to their assigned stop it is the parent’s responsibility to provide transportation for them, he said.
Primary school students will again be riding their own buses. Each student should wear a tag with their name, telephone number and bus number when they get on the bus.
Parents are urged to send their children to school on the bus the first week of classes so routes can be validated.
The start times are only an estimate, due to additions and deletions from the routes the schools continue to receive daily, he said. Streets are listed in the order the bus travels.
