Bus Assignment Procedure
Bus assignments will be available via the Sapphire Community Web Portal.
In the interest of safety and overcrowding of buses, we can only allow students to be assigned to one AM bus and one PM bus for the duration of the school year. This does NOT pertain to a pre-arranged babysitter or custody arrangements.
There is an exception for students who relocate within the District from one home to another. In this instance, they would be assigned a new stop based on their new address.
If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Department at 717-225-4731 ext. 3024 or via email.
A Reminder to Kindergarten Parents
A parent, guardian, or a student in grades 5-12 MUST accommodate your son/daughter to and from the bus stop. Any individuals you have permitted to get your student off the bus must be listed as an emergency contact and notified of this policy. Please contact Transportation with any additional changes.
