Bus Route Postcards

Parents of all potential school bus riders should be receiving light blue postcards in the mail this week notifying them of their child’s bus number, bus stop and morning and afternoon pick-up times.
Four new bus routes are being added for this school year to accommodate growth in the Durbin Creek Elementary, PVPV/Rawlings Elementary and Fruit Cove Middle School areas, as well as an increase in the number of special needs students.  
The routes are available online at http://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/depts/transp/routes. Persons without access to computers may visit any of the county public library locations, and staff will assist them in locating the website.
“Our intent is to provide the information again prior to the start of school in an attempt to improve communications with parents,” said Joe Purvis, Director of Transportation.
There will be 166 school buses transporting approximately 18,200 children twice a day when school starts on Monday, August 22.
