School Messenger: Afternoon Transportation Services

Good evening, Brassfield Families! This is Mrs. MacWilliams calling with some important transportation information. 

Brassfield is tier 3 building, meaning that our buses often run 2 routes prior to transporting Brassfield students. With traditional schools back in session this week, several buses did not leave campus this afternoon until well after their regularly scheduled departure times.  

Given the uncertainty of bus departure times, until traditional schools have settled in, we ask that all requests for changes in afternoon transportation be made to our office prior to 3:00pm. This is to ensure that we can accommodate all requests in a safe and efficient manner. Providing our families with the best customer service possible is a priority. 

All bus departure times will continue to be communicated out live via Twitter, including communication from the Transportation department should buses be running well behind schedule. Families are not required to be members of Twitter to follow this information, which can also be found on our website under News. 

While we cannot predict at this time which buses may continue to be impacted with the start of the traditional calendar, we can anticipate that it may take a week or so for transportation services to acclimate. If your family has a time sensitive obligation after school, and there is any likelihood that you may need to pick up your child prior to his/her bus arriving on campus, please make an afternoon transportation change request before 3:00pm. 

Thank you for your patience. 

Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
