Each day the Cherry Hill School District transports precious cargo - approximately 8,000 of our community's school children. The safety and security of our riders is our number one priority! You can assist us by remembering the following:
- Be prompt. Your child should be ready for pick up five (5) minutes prior to the scheduled pick up time. Once a school bus is moving, it is not permitted to stop for the boarding of any child in-between bus stops or after departing from the school.
- Be patient. Please allow for some fluctuation in pickup and drop-off times, particularly during the first two weeks of school. Remember, too, that throughout the school year, bus schedules may be affected by inclement weather, road construction, or use of a substitute bus driver.
- Be present. AM Kindergarteners (9-11:30 AM) are picked up at a bus stop location in the morning, and then dropped off at their home at mid-day. A parent/guardian/older sibling must be present to receive the child; otherwise, the child will be returned to his/her school. PM Kindergarteners (1-3:30 PM) are picked up at their homes mid-day and are dropped off at their bus stop at day's end. A parent /guardian/older sibling must be present to receive the child; otherwise, the child will be returned to his/her school.
- Be prepared for changes. Following the initial adjustment period, notifications about any changes in bus routes or pickup time will be provided in a memo distributed by the bus driver. Changes are possible throughout the school year as a result of student additions, withdrawals, overflow students, open enrollment students, or address changes.
Please read our Transportation Booklet for more information on transportation service and bus safety rules.
