Introducing "MyBusBuddie" parent portal

Parents and guardians are always interested in the status of the bus that transports their children.  While everything possible is done to assure that the buses operate on schedule, situations arise that can cause delays in their arrival times at a student’s stop.

The Kenton County School District desires to keep parents and guardians informed of the current status and location of their bus, and to make it as easy as possible to provide this communication without interfering with parents’ normal schedule.

Registration is open for Kenton County School District staff members to attend the Professional Growth Academy (PGA).

Transportation Changes bus

You must notify the school office of any changes to your child’s routine transportation schedule. For example, riding a different bus, changing to parent pick up, being picked up early, or being picked up by someone different.

We do not have a “pick up list” so if someone other than the parent/guardian is picking up, we must be notified by the parent/guardian.

You can write a note, send an email or call the office. We ask for notification because children, even the older ones, sometimes forget and we want to make sure your child is where you, the parent/guardian, want them to be after school.

Please notify the school office of changes by 2:30.

Transportation Changes

With student safety being our number one priority, it is imperative that we have written and dated documentation of ALL transportation changes.  This would include not only changes to their typical routine, but also Archery, YMCA, and any other activity that may occur after school.  All notes must be sent to the office to be filed.  This will make our afternoon transitions run more smoothly and be less confusing.  Thank you.
