Schedules and Transportation
Updated Wednesday, August 12
Our Back-to-School 2020 Plan includes adjusted bus transportation and scheduling measures. In keeping with the requirements and guidance, we must cap bus capacity at 50%.
Our bus forms are now closed. Any family who missed signing their child up for bus transportation must call our Transporation Department 336-789-6673. You will be told if the route is full or if there is a seat available.
Due to limited bus capacity, we will be operating with a staggered start schedule until further notice.
Tharrington Primary and Jones Intermediate will operate 7:40 am - 2:30 pm.
Mount Airy Middle will operate 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Mount Airy High will operate 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
