During the summer before this school year began, MSD of Washington Township Transportation Department sent correspondence to families informing them they would no longer send postcards with bus information and parents needed to access their children’s bus number, pickup/drop off location, and time online in Skyward Family Access. Unfortunately, parents of elementary and middle school students in the district have experienced their children’s bus arriving for pickup and/or drop off later than stated online. Although the MSD of Washington Township does use the Here Comes the Bus app to inform parents when their children’s bus will arrive each day, some have found it frustrating when the app shows the bus is arriving late again.
On January 25, 2017, MSDWT School Board approved changing the start and end times for all schools in the district. The change in start and end times for the 2017-18 school year should ensure students are arriving on time to school and arriving home when expected.

High School 7:20 AM – 2:35 PM
