Bus Routes Current School Year

Please note!! Your child may ride a different bus in the morning than in the afternoon.
Likewise the bus stop location in the afternoon may be different.
Be sure to check both arrival and departure documents! 

 All students should be at the morning bus stops at least 5-10 minutes prior to posted departure time.  Bus doors will close at the posted time, and once closed will not open again.  This is to ensure the safety of all our students.

What you/your student should know about riding the school bus

Maryland State Police and the Maryland Center for School Safety remind motorists to stop for school buses. Pay attention when driving, especially in school zones during times of day when school
buses are typically on routes. Stop when a bus stops for a routine stop. It is illegal to pass a school bus when its red lights are flashing. Prepare to stop when the school bus is flashing its yellow lights and be cautious of students moving towards buses during these times. Students of all ages are unpredictable. Therefore, prepare for the unexpected and maintain a safe distance from school buses at all times.
