BUS INFORMATION - 2015-16 Bus Routes

Bus routes for Coastal Empire Montessori are listed here
We here at the school have been informed that the bus company’s download of student information happened before the system “turn over,” which means that any pre-registrations or address changes that were input after this time will not be on this 1st round of bus routes. The next bus download of student info from the system should be on Monday, August 10. New routes and changes will be posted every Tuesday and Thursday.

We know this may be inconvenient for some families; thank you in advance for your patience.

Practice Bus Run Scheduled for Tuesday, August 4, 2015

Reliant Transportation will operate buses on the morning of Tuesday, August 4, 2015, on a practice run. This allows Reliant to test bus schedules and ensure driver familiarity with each route. The run also provides an opportunity for all interested students to become accustomed to their bus route for the upcoming 2015-16 school year. Parents are also encouraged to ride along with their children during the practice run to gain an understating of the bus route and pick up and drop off procedures.
Parents may find the school bus schedule online here
Students from all grade levels are encouraged to participate. For additional information, please call 201-5591.
