The mission of the Falmouth Public Schools Transportation Department is to safely transport our students to and from all school activities.
Students are reminded that all school rules and expectations of behavior apply on buses in transit to and from school, extracurricular activities and field trips.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Greg Kennedy, Director of Transportation - 508-548-0151 ext 176
Changes to Regular Bus Schedules Start on Wednesday, October 6th. Previous schedules will be followed until Tuesday, October 5th.
Regular Bus Schedules Starting Wednesday, October 6th
All students will be placed on their neighborhood bus route unless the Transportation Department has approved an alternative bus for your child. Some students do ride to and from a relative’s address or a parent’s worksite. Any requests for an alternative bus stop must be submitted to my office via email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, September 17.
Students will be issued a bus pass with their bus number and seat assignment. Please have your child’s pass attached to a daily item that they carry, backpack, lunchbox, etc. to speed up the boarding process. The rows on the buses have been labeled A1, A2, etc. on one side and B1, B2 etc. on the other side. Students are required to sit in their assigned seats. Siblings will be placed in the same seats. Elementary students first names will also be placed above the seats to help you children identify their seat. Students that get on the bus first will be assigned to fill the rear of the bus for and then we will fill toward the front as the route continues. Younger students will still be placed in the middle to front seats though.
All riders will be required to wear a mask. Drivers will have extra masks in the event a student misplaces theirs.
No student will be permitted to ride a bus without a bus pass.
If you have moved within town since January or are planning a move before the start of school please notify the Transportation office via email to email@example.com by Friday, September 18 so that we may place your child on the correct bus.
Information of the distribution of passes will be provided soon!
Thank you for understanding and following these directives to ensure a smooth ride for your child.
