Hazardous Route Plan

Hazardous Route Plan

The district makes school bus transportation available to all students living two or more miles from school. This service is provided at no cost to students.

Bus routes and stops will be designated annually, and any subsequent changes will be posted at the school and on the district’s website. For the safety of the operator of the vehicle and all passengers, students must board buses or other vehicles only at authorized stops, and drivers must unload passengers only at authorized stops.

The district has identified the following areas where hazardous traffic conditions and/or areas presenting a high risk of violence exist for students who live within two miles of the campus:  All major roadways (including US Bus 290, FM 1887 and Hwy 159) and railways within the school zone.

Pre-Kindergarten Students who live south and west of Business US 290/State Hwy 6 (Austin Street), and west of Business US 290/State Hwy 6 are eligible bus riders.

Elementary students who live east of FM 1887, north of the railroad tracks and US Bus 290 (Austin Street), and west of Hwy 159 are eligible bus riders.

Middle and High School students who live west of FM 1887, north of the railroad tracks, and US Bus 290 (Austin Street), are eligible to ride the bus.

Because students in these areas might encounter hazardous traffic conditions or be subject to areas presenting a high risk of violence when walking to and from school, the district will provide transportation to these students. Please contact transportation for additional information.
