We are updating bus transportation routes for the 2021-22 school year and we need your help!
Please take a few moments to complete the ridership survey for each student in your household by August 2. If you decline ridership now, and your circumstances change during the school year, please contact the transportation department to make a change. It is important for every school family to complete this survey whether you choose to have your child ride the bus or not. If you do not respond to this survey, your child may not be included in the bus routes.
The District encourages all students to utilize bus transportation in an effort to reduce the amount of traffic for arrival and dismissal. Last school year, traffic was challenging at both Gurney Elementary School and Chagrin Falls Intermediate School.
Once again, the District will be following the COVID-19 safety protocols listed below.
We appreciate your efforts in keeping our campuses safe and reducing congestion by having your students ride the school bus, walk to school, or ride a bike.
We will be sharing bus routing details with families in August.

>The District may limit students to one designated residential address or daycare for pick up and drop off.
>Bus passes will not be permitted unless for emergency or childcare circumstances.
