SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS NEEDED
The Chartiers Valley School District is currently looking for substitute drivers. Several openings are available. We offer free training and a competitive starting salary. For more information, please call 412-429-7011 or view our job openings on our website.
Pick up and drop off times: This is a reminder that the pick up and drop off times listed on the postcards are approximate -- especially at the start of the school year. For various reasons, the times may fluctuate. We ask that all students arrive at the bus stop ten minutes prior to the scheduled time to ensure they do not miss the bus. Please communicate with your driver on a regular basis until the times become more consistent.
Morning pick up: Once your child's morning pickup time is established -- normally within the first two weeks of school -- the driver will not stop and wait for students. If the student is not at the stop when the bus arrives, the bus will continue on its route. At that point, it will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian to transport the student to school.
Pick up and drop off: Students will only be picked up and dropped off at their assigned stops. Parents/guardians may not arrange alternative stops with the bus driver. If you have a concern regarding your child's pick up or drop off location, please contact the Transportation Department at 412-429-7011.
Notification of bus delays: If your child's bus is delayed 15-20 minutes or more, the Transportation Department will send a notification to parets via Infinite Campus messenger.
