On Friday, June 16, 2017, 2017-2018 bus route information for all current BRRSD students will be uploaded to the Parent Portal at 3:00 p.m. All incoming Kindergarten student transportation information will be sent out via email as well as through the U.S. Postal Service. We ask that the parents/guardians of all bus students please review the 2017 -2018 bus stop locations and times. Please note that the bus routes have been reviewed by Lucini Bus Lines and the BRRSD Central Office Administrative Team, were driven and observed by the bus drivers, and were further reviewed by safety officials. Based upon the recommendations of these individuals, changes have been made as means of ensuring the safety of our bus students.
