2014-2015 School Supply Lists

School Bus Routes Information

CCSD Bus Routes for the 2014-2015 school year are now available on the CCSD website at www.cobbk12.org. Runs and maps will be posted at your local school for review prior to the first day of school.

Kindergarten and First Grade students along with their parents are invited to ride the bus on Friday morning, August 1, 2014, as a practice run prior to the first day of school on Monday, August 4. Buses will run at regular scheduled morning pick up times and parents/students should be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early.  Due to limited space, we ask that you limit the number of additional family members riding.  Only school-age children are allowed to ride as our regular buses are not equipped with car seats. The bus will follow the planned route to school, then return back to the bus stop.

During the months of August and September if temperatures reach 90 degrees or higher students may bring water in containers with a screw on lid to drink on the bus. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Department at 678/594-8000, or email your transportation area supervisor whose email can be found on the Transportation website.
