New Parent Notification App:
Transportation Services is in the process of implementing an application that will notify parents of their child’s bus status in the event the bus is delayed. We are using Infinite Campus to send text and emails to parents who choose to receive this information. If you want to receive these status updates and information regarding your child’s school bus, simply follow the instructions on the reverse side of this letter. This application requires you to “opt in” meaning you will need to sign in to Parent Portal and check to receive SMS text for the phone number you wish to receive this information. This will automatically include you in all text information regarding your child’s bus.
We are currently in the implementation phase and would like your feedback. Please feel free to share your thoughts as we want to develop an application that is best suited for our parents. Also, let me know how you like or dislike the information provided. You can reach me by phone, (770) 957-2025, or email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your help and support. For directions on OPTing in click HERE.
Transportation Services Changes for School Year 2015-16:
Transportation will continue to run a Three-Tier Bus Routing System for the 2015-2016 school year. This system is anchored by the separation of the three school levels on bus routes. Each school level will ride the bus independent of the other two levels. This Three-Tier system will also eliminate the need for the non-transportation zone which means all students will be eligible for school bus transportation.
After successful implementation of the three-tier bus routing system during the 2012-2013 school year and adjusting starting and ending times to accommodate the changes, the Henry County School System is making a few updates to the general starting and ending times for elementary, middle, and high schools for the upcoming school year.
2015-2016 General Bell Schedule
School Level Start End
Elementary 7:45 a.m. 2:25 p.m.
Middle 8:55 a.m. 4:05 p.m.
High 8:15 a.m. 3:25 p.m.
