Getting Here from There

The big yellow bus continues on as a symbol heralding the beginning and end of school. This symbolism takes on added meaning with the large geographic area covered by the Schuylerville Central School District.

Schuylerville has more than 25 buses that travel more than a half million miles per year—think of it as going to California and back every day! Approximately 1,700 Schuylerville students, 75 private and parochial school students and 35 special needs students ride our buses to 25 different schools each day.

Safety First

With such a high level of activity, safety is the top priority. Schuylerville’s buses are thoroughly inspected every morning. Our bus drivers go through extensive training before obtaining licensing.

Parents have a role in bus safety, too. [READ MORE]

There are some students on our buses who have life-threatening allergies to peanuts and /or nut products. To this end, all Schuylerville Central School District vehicles are designated peanut- and nut-free [read more]

Information on bus route letters for 2014-2015

All transportation letters for the 2014-2015 have been mailed home to students in Grades 1-12. Transportation information for students entering kindergarten will be enclosed in a packet being mailed to parents in the coming weeks by the Elementary School. If you have not received a letter and your child is not entering kindergarten, contact Transportation Dispatcher Cindy Perkins at (518) 695-3468 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday-Friday.

 

Bus routes & bus signs

Information on Schuylerville’s bus routes is distributed by the Transportation Department. For safety purposes, we do not post bus routes on the district website.

Please write down your child’s bus number for easy access in case you need to communicate with the Transportation Department. Parents are also encouraged to find out the name of their child’s bus driver.

To easily identify buses, each vehicle will also have a sign on the side with a picture or icon. Here's a list of the buses and their accompanying pictures:
