Bus Transportation Info 2013-2014
17 May 2013
Representatives from the Tacoma Public Schools Facilities Department attended our last PTA meeting and agreed to find answers to the questions about bus routes, schedules and before- and after-school programs and provide them to you this week. Here were the questions they heard: · Can parents have a central location with an express bus directly to Hunt? · Where are the bus routes? · How many buses will there be? · What are the pick-up and drop-off times? · Some fifth-grade students take band at Mason. Their parents drop them off in the morning, will a bus take them to Hunt after practice next school year?
Please take a look at the TRANSPORTATION MEMO provided which hopefully answers most of the questions parents have regarding bussing for next year.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Stacy Flores, the TPS Facilities Communication Coordinator at (253) 571-3350
