2020-21 Bus Schedules Now Available (Updated)

The Council Bluffs Community School District bus schedule is now available for the upcoming 2020-21 school year. Children should arrive at the bus stop five minutes before the planned pickup time to ensure that students can arrive to school on time. Note that the Monday drop off times will be different than posted, based on the early dismissal.  In our Hybrid Phase, there will be fewer students on each bus so that students can spread out. We will have windows partially open for extra ventilation, and will also expect students to wear masks and use the hand sanitizer that will be available upon boarding the bus.  Our partners at First Student will be disinfecting the buses with a safe product that resists viruses on the surfaces.  If you have any questions about busing, please contact your child's school or First Student Bus Company at 712-320-8999.

Note: Bus times are subject to change.
