Bus Routes Are Changing After Winter Break

Dear Families

Improvements are Coming to Columbus City Schools’ Yellow Bus Transportation Service and Reliability. 

Starting January 4th, your child’s bus route will likely change, with a new driver, new pick-up and drop-off times, or a new bus stop location. Over the next month, please watch your mail and email for the new route information.

Our Transportation team is currently completing all of the new bus routes and schedules. In the coming weeks, you should receive information in the mail with the new bus route and schedule. 

Updates will also be sent to parents through email and text messaging. That’s why it’s important that you make sure your contact information is up-to-date at your child’s school. We need your email and phone number, including a cell phone number for text messages.

Information is also being shared with the principal/administrator at your child’s school. Please reach out to the school for more details. More updates will be coming in the weeks ahead.

You can also read more about our Transportation Reliability Improvement Measures on the Columbus City Schools website at ccsoh.us/transportation.

We know families at many of our city’s Charter and Non-Public Schools have been impacted by this year’s unprecedented transportation challenges. We look forward to working collaboratively with you and your child’s school so we can be better partners in reliably busing all of our city’s students safely to school and back home each day.

Thank you, 

Columbus City Schools Transportation

Eastland Preparatory Academy Not Affected by Teacher Strike

Over the past week, we’ve been fielding questions from our community about the potential teacher strike at Columbus City Schools.

We will begin the school year in-person as planned on Wednesday 8/17. For information about the new school year (calendar, supply lists, dress code, etc), visit our Parent Resources page.
