With regard to morning AM pick up runs – If your student(s) are waiting at their designated bus stop and the bus is more than 10-15 minutes late, please feel free to contact the bus garage (517) 467-7761 and we should be able to give you information as it relates to your bus stop, whether the bus is running late due to having to call a substitute driver, a change in bus due to a mechanical problem, or whatever the situation may be, we should be able to give you an approximate time for your student(s) AM pickup. If you call the bus garage and no one answers, that means that everyone, including the transportation supervisor is out driving an AM bus run and no one is in the office. At this point, you may want to drive your student(s) to school or make other arrangements for them to ride with someone to school. If you do not have transportation for your student, there will be someone in the transportation office after 7:30 a.m. and they will be able to help you with questions you may have. If your students AM bus run was not able to run at the scheduled time, we will take down names of the students who still need an AM pick up. After the buses come in from their AM runs, we will send another driver out to complete the run for all student who still need a ride on the bus that did not go out on that particular morning. (This will only be done if an AM bus run did not go out and not for missing the bus). We strive to keep the bus runs running smoothly, but there are given days when unexpected delays may occur that are beyond our control. We understand that this may interrupt your morning routine, but would appreciate your understanding and help with regards to getting your student(s) to school safely.
