Zones & Transportation
All residences in Putnam County lie within one of the elementary, middle, and high school attendance areas. Any dispute concerning the location of residence near the boundary lines of two (2) adjacent attendance areas is resolved by the Superintendent, using the official attendance area map on file at the Board of Education office. When family circumstances warrant, and if classroom space is available, parents may receive special permission from the Superintendent for their children to attend school out of their regular attendance zone. Permission must be secured before enrolling a child out-of-zone. Parents may obtain proper forms from the school, the central office or from the file cabinet on the Parents & Community - Support page.
Bus Routes and Schedules
Published bus schedules reflect approximate times for only a few of the stops. Pickup time for your child may be estimated by order of stops listed. Afternoon runs are generally the reverse of morning runs. The schedule is available under Announcements on the left navigational bar.
Inclement Weather/Emergency School Closings
For emergency closing information view our home page.
The Superintendent of Schools, in consultation with state road officials, maintenance, and transportation directors, bus drivers, and parents in different parts of the county, assesses road and school conditions before making the crucial decision about emergency school closings. When road conditions are unsafe due to snow, ice, or flooding, school will be cancelled. Schools may also be closed due to failure of mechanical or electrical equipment, heating, fuel shortages, epidemics, or other circumstances having to do with the health, safety, and welfare of students. If students must be sent home during the school day, they will be released from school to return home in the regular manner, unless the school has been notified otherwise by the parents in advance.
If a bus is unable to make a morning run due to bad weather or emergency conditions, the bus may not run in the afternoon. Parents who arrange for a child's transportation to school in the morning should also arrange for transportation home in the afternoon. Failure of a bus to run is considered an excused absence.
The following radio and television stations are called to announce when schools are closed:
Closings are also posted on the "School Closing Hot Line" at 586-0500, ext. 4 and under Announcements on the left navigation bar.
