The Tell City-Troy Township School Corporation provides transportation to elementary, middle and high school students who reside in Tell City and surrounding areas. Transportation services may vary due to residential proximity to the schools, road conditions or construction, and safety concerns.
Jr-Sr High School will have designated walking areas for students that reside within a 6 block radius of the school that will not include bus transportation.
Routes are reviewed for safety factors that may include railroad crossings, lack of sidewalks, and the volume of traffic on a given road. Parents will be provided with an approximate pick-up and drop-off time for their student's assigned stop. City bus stops are located about every 2 blocks when possible. Parents are responsible for transporting students to the nearest stop. Home stops are designated for students with special needs/disabilities as determined by the school administration.
Buses are not permitted to turn around in private driveways or drive on private roads without the written permission of the land owner. School buses will not be allowed to travel on streets with no outlets or single lane roads. Students living on dead-end streets will be required to come to the nearest existing bus stop. Buses will not travel on any roads covered with water.
School delays due to weather will be announced using School Messenger and Facebook.
Students remain the responsibility of the parent(s) prior to loading and after disembarking the bus. Parent(s) are required to be at the bus stops for students K-2 unless written permission is given to the school office.
A student will not be transported to or from an alternate location without written permission from a parent/legal guardian. Transportation to an alternate location is allowed for custodial or student supervision.
