The School District is building the bus routes from home addresses unless the District Office is contacted immediately of an alternate address. Please email Lisa Muse at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the Students Name, Home Address, Alternate address for bussing, School Attending and the Grade for the 2022/2023 year. Please note that this request does not guarantee transportation.
If, at any time during the school year, we can adjust these decisions, we will notify all parents.
High School Students
Due to the continued bus driver shortage, we required High School students to sign up for bussing this year.
That deadline was August 12th to sign up in order for us to finalize the bus routes.
If you missed this deadline and need bussing, please email Lisa Muse at email@example.com.
Middle School, Elementary and Moose Hill REGULAR EDUCATION students will automatically be assigned a bus route for the upcoming 2022/23 school year.
Due to bus capacity limitations, we cannot provide transportation to or from the following daycares for students in Grades 1-12: Applewood Learning Center, The Ark Learning Center, Cozy Kids Child Care, Londonderry Learning Academy, The Learning Tree, World of Discovery and the YMCA. Parents should contact these daycares directly to discuss transportation.
Transportation will continue to/from ALL daycares for Moose Hill students.

2022-2023 Regular Ed Bus Transportation Bus Routes:
Bus routes are constantly changing after the start of school. Please contact Lisa Muse at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a specific bus route question.
Transportation Contact Form
Children should be at the bus stop at least five (5) minutes prior to the pick up time.
Bus routes are not "door to door" routes. If your child's assigned bus stop is located on the opposite side of the street from where you live, children should wait on the side of the street where their home is located until the bus arrives at their stop and the driver signals it is safe to cross the street.
Winter Stops will be considered subject to the safety of the student and will be reviewed upon request. Winter stops run from Thanksgiving break to February vacation.
Walking Distance Guidelines (per Policy EEA-R)
Kindergarten students shall be picked-up at their driveway whenever possible; maximum walking distance for setting bus stops shall be:
Elementary grade students .25 (1/4) of a mile
Middle school grades .5 (1/2) of a mile
High school grades .5 (1/2) of a mile
Whenever possible or appropriate, bus stops will be located closest to the residence of younger students.
Bus Stop Considerations
Each stop is assessed individually and based on safety, walking distance, special needs, route efficiency and time constraints.
There should be no expectation that bus routes will remain the same from school to school or year to year.
Please note not every student will have a bus stop directly in front of the house. Whenever possible, we try to consolidate bus stops so more than one student can be picked up at a time. Consolidating stops at corners and grouping neighbors to one stop helps to make the bus routes shorter by not having to make multiple stops on one road.
Parents are responsible for the safety of their children from the time they leave home in the morning until the time they board the school bus; and at the end of the school day from the time the students depart from the bus until the time the children reach home. Once the child enters the school bus, the authority lies with the bus driver and the District’s bus company.
To ensure the safety and secure environment of District students, the Londonderry School Board authorizes the use of video and audio recording devices by the District on any or all buses or other vehicles (hereinafter “bus”) used to provide transportation for in-District students. This authority shall extend additionally to all vehicles owned by the District or contracted by the District for the in-district transportation of its students. The School Board authorizes the Superintendent to establish and maintain guidelines and procedures for the retention and viewing of the recordings.
