The St. Johns County School District’s (SJCSD) bus routes for the 2012-2013 school year were approved by the School Board at its meeting on May 15. Five new bus routes are being added to accommodate growth in the Durbin Crossing and Nocatee areas as well as an increase in the number of special needs students.
The routes are available online at www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/transportation/routes. Parents without access to computers may visit any of the county public library locations, and staff will assist them in locating the website.
“By providing this information prior to the end of school, parents are better able to plan and prepare,” said SJCSD Director of Transportation Joe Purvis.
In early August, postcards will be sent home to the parents of all potential bus riders giving them the bus stop, times and bus number for their students.
The Transportation Department will be transporting approximately 18,800 children twice a day when school starts on Monday, August 20.
