Dear Parents, Guardians, Students, and Staff,

It is my hope you all had a wonderful summer and had the opportunity to recharge and spend time with your families. Last year was difficult with COVID scheduling and hybrid schedules, however we all came together to rise above, and this year we are starting off the school year back to regular schedule. 😊

Parents or Guardians are required to be present at pick up and drop for students attending Pre-K through 3rd Grade. Students in Grades 4 through 12 will be let off the bus without a parent present unless you have specified with the transportation office otherwise.

Posted to the right you will find all the bus routes for in-district schools. Please click on the link to locate the bus stop nearest your residence. Route and Bus numbers are the same location. The assigned route number will be posted in the second bus window next to the service door. Please refer to the route number signs as the bus number may be different if the regular bus is scheduled for service.

The transportation department has implemented cleaning protocols to ensure that all buses are thoroughly cleaned/disinfected daily and in-between runs. Parents/guardians are asked to help ensure that students always adhere to safety guidelines such as wearing a mask while riding the bus.

If you wish to know the specific route your child has been assigned to, you may call the Transportation Office at 860-779-6790/4129. Schools will also have bus route lists available. Any questions or concerns should be directed to the transportation office staff.

Please have your child at the bus stop ten minutes prior to the pick-up time. We ask for your patience during the first couple weeks of the 2021-2022 school year as there may be delays, we want to ensure that everyone gets to and from school safely.

Some bus stops are congregate stops within safe walking distance. A great deal of effort has been undertaken to provide quality and timely transportation for all our KPS students.

Thank you for your help and I look forward to working with you over the coming school year!!

 

Best,

 

Joseph Boulanger

If you decide to opt out of transportation, please call us at the office so we can update your child's file.  This helps us keep accurate files with bussing and times.  

Thank you,

Transportation Staff
