Frequently Asked Questions

When does my child need to be waiting at the bus stop?


Parents should make sure their children are at the bus stop at least 5 minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive.




Will the bus leave if my child is not at the bus stop?


Yes! Bus drivers are instructed to stop at the designated pick-up point to look for students. If the student is not at the stop, the driver needs to continue on to keep the route running on time. Bus drivers cannot hold traffic or delay routes to wait for students that are not at the bus stop.




How can I find bus stop locations and pick-up times?


Wawasee Community School Corporation offers a resource called Inforfinder-i. Infofinder-i is designed to help you locate the school your child will attend and provide you with bus stop locations and times. Infofinder-i
