2018-2019 Bus RoutesRoute information may change daily as we receive changes of address and as we continue to welcome new students to our district. Routes are subject to change from year to year.
Routes are updated as changes to the routes continue. Please use the links below to view the latest bus routes per school. Please make sure you refresh the page to view the most recent bus schedule.
PLEASE NOTE: Route times are estimated and will vary particularly in the beginning of the school year, during inclement weather, and traffic congestion on I-95. As always, times listed are approximate and can vary +/- five minutes on regular routes. All questions/concerns regarding routing, bus drivers, safety, and bus stops should be directed via email to the Finance & Operations Office.
In the event that your student does not require busing, please let the district know so that we can remove your student from the route. If your student is bus eligible, you will receive a letter in ASPEN on August 22, 2018 and you will note a bus route on AM route in ASPEN. Please note that not all students in the district are bus eligible.
