Transportation

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.

School closings and delays

When Schuylerville Central School District is forced to close or delay schools or to dismiss students early due to inclement weather or other emergency conditions, information is posted on the district homepage. Parents can also be notified by signing up for the closings/delays notification on Blackboard Connect, and on the district’s mobile app.

Bus Routes and 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.
