The telephone number for the Atlanta Public Schools’ Transportation Office is 404-802-5500. Use this number if you have any concerns about bus transportation. The transportation department of Atlanta Public Schools configures bus routes based on maximum occupancy. Our buses become over-crowded very quickly when children bring friends home that normally ride a different bus, walk, or carpool home. Therefore, students will not be allowed to bring friends home on the bus – absolutely no exceptions.
- At both campuses, morning buses are unloaded in the front drive of the school beginning at 7:30am and students proceed directly to their Homeroom class.
- Bus dismissal begins at 2:30pm at both campuses. Due to the large number of buses, students are loaded for afternoon dismissal in groups.
- At both campuses, teachers escort students to the bus each afternoon.
A REMIND account is set up by the school for each APS bus. Information on how to sign up to receive these text alerts will be communicated via the Bee Mail prior to the first day of school and can also be found HERE. Parents of bus riders are STRONGLY encouraged to sign up for this communication service. Any changes (delays, change of bus, break down, etc.) to the normal operation of the bus will be texted by the school as soon as the school learns of the change.
