Reminders Regarding Bus Transportation -  Bus transportation to and from school is available to Simsbury residents only. School Bus routes are generally published mid to late August on the Simsbury Board of Education's website. Please keep in mind that ONLY Simsbury residents are eligible for bus transportation. Non-Simsbury residents MAY NOT RIDE THE BUS even to be dropped off for a playdate or because they stayed overnight at a friend's house.  Click here to view all of the important information related to bus transportation.

If you are Simsbury residents and use bus transportation, please be reminded that any "special arrangements" (e.g., your child(ten) is(are) picked up or dropped off at a Simsbury address other than the home address) must be submitted to the town's transportation coordinator in writing prior to the start of school.  This must be done annually, even if the arrangements will be the same as last year's.  Please be sure to provide the school office with a copy of the information you share with the transportation coordinator.  Please do not contact Salter's Bus Company directly.

Please note that this does not refer to those occasional play dates or times that a Simsbury student needs to ride an alternate bus or needs to get off a stop early.  Those occasions are handled by sending a note to school to request a bus pass for that day's travel.

 Your request for special transportation arrangements must be submitted in writing and should be communicated to Susan Caccamo using the following contact information:

Susan Caccamo, Transportation and Enrollment Coordinator

Simsbury, CT  06070
