In order to expedite the process, we are condensing each bus route and establishing “drop spots” in communities.   

This approach should keep each bus closer to schedule and eliminate wait times. 

  • Busses will be scheduled at each spot for 10 minutes for parents to retrieve meals for students. 
  • Busses will be starting earlier, and stops with larger groups will be serviced from 2 bus windows, socially distanced apart. 
  • Parents also have the option of utilizing drive-up sites at William Penn, McCullough, and Wilbur from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM on distribution days at the loading dock area in the back of the schools.
