Monroe's Transportation Department is planning bus routes for the second quarter. If your child's transportation needs are changing, you must fill out a Transportation Form on OneView by the end of the day on Thursday, October 8. The district needs to know if you no longer need transportation or if you do need transportation starting on October 20.
"Due to the extremely short time frame we have in which to make the necessary routing changes, it is very important to have the forms in by the deadline. If the forms are not in by the deadline, transportation may not be available for your child until October 23," shared Monroe's Director of Operations, Jesse Catanzaro.
If your child is currently in the hybrid model and will continue to ride the bus, you do not need to complete a form but know that your child's bus number or route will likely change. With the switch to full return, many bus numbers and routes will be different.
The Petermann Bus Tracker app is free on the Google play store or the Apple store and linked on the Monroe website. Your child's student ID number is required to access their bus route. If you do not remember your child's ID number, you can retrieve it on ProgressBook. The bus tracker app will reflect the wrong information while we are re-routing between October 12-15.It will not reflect the updated routes until after 3 p.m. on October 15.
