RE: West Genesee Transportation Implementation

        Effective December 6, 2021

 Dear Parents/Guardians/Caregivers,

This letter is a follow-up ongoing communication to a letter from October 29, 2021 indicating scheduling changes and route changes that will begin next week.

Letters were sent to parents regarding pick-up and drop off times while “dry runs” were occurring. The letters included a “Change of Information Notification” form (located here) with regard to any changes that may be appropriate for your child(ren). Information has also been sent from individual buildings with regard to scheduling or logistics for that particular building.

Checking New Routes/Times

Beginning today, the BusQuest App will include current routing information (“2021-2022”) AND the run times to be implemented on December 6 (“Dec 6, 2021-2022”). A video tutorial can be found here to help assist this process and allow you to see the routing information that begins next week. The information viewed will be the most updated relative to any requested changes from parents or route efficiencies built in from the review of our drivers.

Please contact the West Genesee Transportation Department at 315-487-4576 with any additional request for changes based on the most updated information as seen on the BusQuest App.

As a reminder (from the October 29, 2021 letter):

The following schedules will begin on Monday, December 6:

West Genesee High School: Student and Staff day will begin 5 minutes later than the current schedule. The student day will be 7:35 a.m.-2:02 p.m., with staff reporting at 7:25 a.m. (Interaction Time will be 2:06 p.m.-2:41 p.m.)

Camillus Middle School: Student and Staff day will begin 10 minutes earlier than the current schedule. The student day will be 7:45 a.m.-2:20 p.m., with staff reporting at 7:30 a.m. (Interaction Time will be 2:25 p.m.-2:50 p.m.)

West Genesee Middle School: The student day will be 65 minutes earlier than the current schedule with the staff day 35 minutes earlier. The student day will be 7:50 a.m.-2:15 p.m., with staff reporting at 7:40 a.m.

Note: Elementary Schools (ST, SR, EH, OR) will have no change in schedule.

Let me reiterate that this change is not taken lightly and is the result of many challenges since the start of the school year and months of revisions for correction. We recognize the inconveniences and continue to ask for your understanding as we navigate this school year.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership.
