Starting this fall, students from Bourne High School (grades 9-12) and Bourne Middle School (grades 6-8) will be transported together. As a reminder, high school students must fill out a bus application annually and pay a fee. If you plan for your high school student to ride the bus and have not already completed the application, please do so as soon as possible. The application can be found HERE.
Bournedale Elementary School (grades PK-2) and Bourne Intermediate School (grades 3-5) will be transported separately. Bournedale buses will have a white dot to signal a K-2 bus and Bourne Intermediate buses will have a purple dot to signal a 3-5 bus. Please be cognizant that these buses could arrive within minutes of each other. Preliminary bus routes are currently posted on our WEBSITE and will be subject to change based upon student move in and move outs over the summer.
Individual schools will be sending out more detailed information about parent drop off and pick up as this process with be changing significantly in the new school year.
