Palm Beach County School Bus Information- Let's Get Off to a Good Start!
School Buses will soon hit the streets of Palm Beach County as the 2011 school year begins on August 22. If you're not sure whether your child will qualify for bus pick up or need information on the various routes you can find that at the Palm Beach District Transportation site.
At this site you can go to BUS ROUTES and scroll to find the name of your child's school. And, according to the Florida Statutes and the State Board of Education Rule, students must live 2 miles or more away from the school to be eligible for transportation. There are exceptions so please contact the Transportation Department for more information.
Here are Some Tips for Parents:
1. Make sure your child arrives at least 5 minutes before pick up
2. Go over safety tips with your children.
3. Make sure they know the school bus number and route.
4. Instruct your children on the importance of wearing their seat belt ..even in the bus!
