Bus Information

Important Information from All Star Transportation

In order to maintain the pickup times listed below, Newtown Public Schools requests that students be at their bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled pickup time. Students should stand back 10 to 15 feet from the road whenever possible. Students should wait for the school bus to come to a complete stop and for the doors to open before approaching the bus. Children should never run after the bus as it pulls away as the driver may not see them. If your child has to cross in front of the bus they should be instructed to wait until the bus driver nods their head to signal it is safe to cross the street.Students should also be instructed to cross at least 10 feet in front of the bus; so they can see the driver then the driver can see them. If they should drop something in front of the bus, they should leave it until they get the driver’s attention and permission to retrieve the item.

The bus schedules are subject to revision due to enrollment changes such as transfers, address changes, or additional registrations. Any changes or additions will be posted to the school district’s website and residents are encouraged to check the website, www.newtown.k12.ct.us, often.
  The time printed with each bus route is the approximate time the bus will make its first pickup in the morning. Adjustments will be made as necessary and as soon as possible. Please do not worry if a bus is late. It generally takes a few days for kindergarten children and new students to become accustomed to the bus routes and schedules.

Students should be at the appropriate stops 10 minutes before the time listed on the bus route. The stop times can vary 10 minutes either way, depending on traffic, weather, and the number of students riding the bus.
