Which bus operator transports my child?

Every yellow school bus has a Bus Route Number displayed in the window beside the entrance to the bus. This bus route number includes a letter. You can also also find your child’s route number through the parent portal here.

Example: M01
M = M.L. Bradley

Any inquiries regarding the driver of your child’s school bus should be directed to the bus operator directly, by calling their contact phone number, listed to the left.
