PREVIOUS COMMUNICATION

 

MESSAGE FROM THE WEST YORK AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT:

The WYASD will currently has building-specific buses that transport all elementary students. Buses are easily identified with the name of the school on each bus. Multi-building households (siblings, etc.) will be considered in the planning of routes.

KINDERGARTEN BUS STOP RELEASE PROCEDURES CHANGE:

As an ongoing measure to keep our students safe, parents/caregivers of Wallace kindergarten students MUST come to the bus doors to claim their child at the bus stop. If the driver and student cannot identify the adult picking up, the child will remain on the bus and be returned to Wallace Elementary for pick up.
