2015-2016 FIRELANDS BUS ROUTES


US 20 will be closed between Gore Orphanage and Baird Road through Monday, Sept. 7. In addition, Quarry Rd. will be closed south of Rt. 113 after Labor Day, so it will affect one Rt. in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Students who do not ride the bus to school on the first day will need to check with their teacher or the office to find the correct bus number to ride home in the afternoon. Do not assume that they ride the same bus home as last year as several of the bus numbers have changed.

You will find the morning Rt.s listed by township, bus driver, driver’s name, and tentative bus number. If the bus that arrives at your house is different than what is published, the driver will instruct the students of the proper number.

Times are approximate and may vary, especially the first week or two of school. The Firelands Schools ask that you have your child ready ahead of time and wait for the bus in a safe location approximately 10 feet from the road. There will continue to be an emphasis on designated place of safety both before and after school. Even students on the righthand side need to stay back away from the edge of the road and wait until the bus driver signals them before students approach the bus. For those who need to cross the road, wait for the drivers hand signal before crossing and check traffic on your own.

All Firelands students in grades six to 12 will be transported on the high school/middle school Rt.s and kindergarten through grade five will be transported on the elementary Rt.s. St. Joseph students will be transported on high school/middle school Rt.s in the morning and afternoon. Open Door students will be transported on the morning high school Rt.s and afternoon elementary Rt.s. Summit Academy, Spectrum, and Horizon students will be transported on morning high school Rt.s and afternoon will be on their own Rt..

All of the information listed here as well as the aftermppm Rt.s will be available at www.firelandsschools.org under the Central Office tab/Transportation along with the variance form procedure and a printable variance form for your convenience.
