Bus Information

We want your child's bus experience to be efficient and stress free.  Here are some tips:

  • A CONSISTENT routine helps ensure that student, teacher, and driver are not confused about pick up and drop off locations.
  • If you leave a message for a teacher or school office, do NOT assume the message has been received unless you hear back from a staff member.
  • Please call 515-386-4168 if you need to make a change to your child's bus routine, and please note the bus barn requests a 24 hour notice to accommodate the change.
  • Check out and get familiar with our transportation information.  Access this information on our website (https://drive.google.com/file/...).  

A couple of busing changes to note:

  • The Rippey bus stop pick up time before school has changed to 7:20am.  Students affected have been notified, and the transportation information sheet reflects this time change.
  • Starting Sept. 6th, bus #1 will pick up and drop off at 801 W Lincolnway (Trinity Lutheran Church).  Pick up time is approximately 7:50am; drop off time is approximately 3:55pm.  Bus #1 will continue to make its other stops;  the Trinity Lutheran stop has been added to this route.  Therefore, if your child boards and/or exits the bus at Trinity Lutheran Church, your child will be on bus #1, on and after Sept. 6th.  The transportation information sheet will be updated Friday evening to reflect this change.  

We appreciate your patience as our bus routines get settled!
