School bus route schedules available online

by Celia Shortt

The bus schedules for the 2013-14 Coweta County School Year are now available on The Newnan Times-Herald website.

Parents and students can go to www.times-herald. com and click on the blue bar at the top of the page. Select the school(s) and download its bus schedule.

Students who will ride the bus on the first day of school are advised to be at their neighborhood bus stop no later than 6:45 a.m. on Aug. 6, and for the first full week of school (Aug. 6-10). Parents should expect a longer wait for the bus during that time, too. Bus ridership is impossible to predict on the first day of school, but regular morning pick-up times will become predictable as routes are established.

Bus pick-up sites have remained largely unchanged since last school year. Generally, if a home is on a street or cul-de-sac of 2/10ths of a mile or less in length, students should wait for the bus on the nearest street corner. If a subdivision street or other neighborhood street is longer than 2/10ths of a mile long, bus stops are generally 1/10th of a mile apart based on ridership.

Representatives of the transportation department will also be in schools during school orientation times on Monday, Aug. 5 and the first day of school on Aug. 6.
