Cobb Kindergarten and First Grade Families
can ride along on school bus trial runs
Friday, August 1st

Parents or guardians of students entering Kindergarten or First Grade in Cobb County Schools may ride along on their child's school bus trial run on Friday, Aug. 1. The District offers this opportunity to help families introduce Cobb's youngest students to the school bus and make our first day on Monday, Aug. 4 run more smoothly.

Click the Bus Route link to use the online bus route query system to identify the stop time, location and bus number for your student. Plan to arrive at your child's bus stop five minutes before the scheduled pickup time. Buses will travel complete routes to and from each school, returning students and parents back to their original bus stops.

Note:  Due to limited available space,
only Kindergarten and First Grade students and their parent(s) or guardian(s) may participate in the ride along.
