Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year!  Our Taylor County School District Transportation Department is excited to get back on the road.  The responsibility that guides that effort is immense. Our staff will not budge an inch without an abiding commitment to do it safely, dependably, and efficiently. Our buses are clean, disinfected, and ready.  Employees have received training & the necessary supplies needed to combat the spread of COVID.    We will use all of resources to provide a safe ride daily, for everyone.

Please review the routes and choose the stop closest to your home.  Several routes have changed so please make sure you check for new bus numbers, new stop times & location.  We ask students to be at their stop five (5) minutes prior to their assigned pick-up time. When the bus is approaching the stop student should be out of their vehicle ready to board the bus as soon as the door opens.  As we attempt to maintain our set schedule, often times the bus is late due to weather, mechanical issues or student tardiness.  It is our goal to have all students to their respective schools for breakfast & first bell. 

Bus rules and registrations will be handed out to students the first week of school. We ask you fill out the registration forms completely, with current contact information.  This information is critical in case of an emergency.  To help ensure the safety of your children, take a moment to discuss the safety rules with them. Riding the bus is a privilege and repeat offenders with multiple referrals will lose their privilege.  It is important parents/guardians work closely with the driver to help maintain an orderly, safe environment on the school bus.

I have a fleet of drivers, bus aides, mechanics & office staff with the experience needed for the job. I am very proud to have such an amazing team to work with.   We are honored to transport the most precious cargo in Taylor County and will always take pride in “Transporting Our Youth into A Positive Future”. 

 

Respectfully,

Wendy Slaughter, Transportation Coordinator
