Please remember someone must be at the bus stop to meet your child at the end of the day. If no one is at the bus stop, the student will be taken back to the elementary school where the parent will have to pick up their child.
DELAYED BUSES (Morning and Afternoon)
On occasion, a bus might be late picking up or dropping off students due to railroad traffic, road construction, weather conditions or a substitute driver.
In the mornings, there is no set time limit that a student should wait for a bus. However, we suggest students wait at their bus stop a minimum of 10–15 minutes past the scheduled pick up time before returning home.
This occurs primarily with the elementary runs. If there is a delay with a JSHS run or other route that will cause a ripple effect to the departure time of the elementary buses.
Please know that drivers strive to be consistent with pick up and drop off times but sometimes this is not possible.
In the event a bus does not arrive as scheduled, please contact Student Transportation of America (STA) at 412-269-9970 to check on the location of your child’s bus. We ask that you allow 15 minutes before calling.
The district works closely with the bus company to ensure they are communicating if a bus is going to be late. As a courtesy, if the district is notified in advance, an electronic notification (robocall) will be issued if a bus is anticipated to be late by 15 minutes or more.
Student Transportation of America (STA) is currently hiring for bus and van drivers, as well as monitors to ride with the students. If you or anyone you know may be interested in working for STA, please call Lynn Fabian at 412-269-9970.
