Beginning on Monday, July 30, 2018, the Florence Unified School District will be adding a third tier of bus routes for Poston Butte High School. Currently, we are five bus drivers short and six physical buses short of being able to offer the current two-tiered system District-wide.
For residents living in Rancho Bella Vista South, Rancho Bella Vista North, and the Greens I and II, we will be providing bus services to and from the following stops:
- Stardust at the Park (Desert Rose)
- Appalachian at Lakeview
- Stardust at Cheyenne
- Appalachian at Rolls
- Desert Honeysuckle at the Park
- Tourmaline at Cowboy Cove
- Omega at Gunderson
Due to the creation of the third tier for these riders, pick up time for students will be 5:45 a.m. Students will be loaded in the regular bus loading section at PBHS at 4:00 p.m. These routes and times will remain in place for the 2018-2019 school year.
Poston Butte High School will open the Bronco Zone at 6:00 a.m. moving forward and will leave the Bronco Zone open after school until 4:00 p.m. so that students have a safe, indoor space to be when they arrive at school and await the buses in the afternoon.
We thank you for your cooperation and continued support.
