Dear Parents,

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. 

If you have any questions or would like more information on this issue, please contact the Transportation Department at (520) 868-8804 or (520) 868-8801.

We thank you for your cooperation and continued support.
