NEW BUS ROUTES 2021--2022 Updated September 20, 2021:
 
MASKS ARE REQUIRED TO BE WORN ON SCHOOL BUSES TO COMPLY WITH A FEDERAL ORDER.
 
As of September 20, 2021, all double runs have been eliminated.
 
IWCS is experiencing several bus driver vacancies.  As such, some drivers will be conducting a "double run" and picking up a second group of students after their assigned run. 
 
If your child's bus says NO DRIVER, they will be picked up AFTER another bus has finished their run. 
PLEASE ADD 30 MINUTES TO THE CURRENT PICK-UP TIME TO ALLOW FOR THE DELAY. 
The following buses/routes impacted at this time are:  Carrollton Elementary--Bus 9 and Bus 191; Windsor Elementary Bus 188; Westside Elementary--Bus 100, 108, Bus 177.
 
If your child's route shows "Double Back",  the times are already factored into the route.  The posted time IS the time your child will be picked up for school.
 
The division is actively working to resolve this situation.  Until then, we appreciate your patience with our drivers and members of the Transportation team.
 
Please note that runs are continually updated through the first month of school.  You should arrive at the stop 10 minutes prior to the listed bus time.  For questions, please contact the Transportation Office at  757-357-9926 or 757-357-8816.
