Region 10 School Bus Routes

The 2016-17 school bus routes for the Region 10 Schools are listed under the school that your student will be attending. You can find bus routes here.

Residents are asked to share issues or concerns with their child’s bus stop location by calling All-Star Transportation’s Harwinton office at 860-605-9285.

Parents should check the district website for information about early dismissal days (for example: conferences and early release days). You can find a complete list of school bell schedules here.

For kindergarten students who will be riding their first bus, there’s an orientation video available.

NOTE: Bus schedules are subject to revisions that result from enrollment changes, transfers and address changes. Changes and/or additions will be posted to the school district’s website and residents are encouraged to frequently check the Region 10 website.

The time for each bus route is the approximate time the bus will make its first pickup in the morning. Adjustments will be made as necessary and as soon as possible. Students should be at their stops 5-10 minutes before the time listed on the bus route. The stop times can vary 5-10 minutes either way, depending on traffic, weather and the number of students riding the bus.

Please do not worry if a bus is late, especially at the start of a school year when it typically takes a few days for kindergarten children and new students to become accustomed to the bus routes and schedules. If, however, you have concerns about your bus being consistently late over a period of several days, please contact the Harwinton office at 860-605-9285.

It is important that students remember to stand at least 10 feet from the road and not move toward the bus until the bus driver nods his or her head signaling that it is safe to board the bus.

Bus Pick-up / Drop-Off Procedure / Waiver Form

Region 10 has an established procedure for changing bus drop offs and pickups. If you need to change the location where your student is picked up or dropped off, you must do so through your school’s main office or from Region 10’s business office. The process outlined in Region 10’s Transportation Packet.

Students in kindergarten through second grade must be met at the bus stop by a parent, known adult or older sibling. If no parent, known adult or older sibling is at the bus stop, children will be transported back to their home schools.

If a family chooses, a waiver may be signed that will allow a first- or second-grade child to disembark from the bus, even if no adult is there to meet the children. Please check with your child’s school for the procedure. No waiver will be accepted for a kindergarten student – an adult or older sibling must always be present.

If you have questions, please e-mail marion.solgovic@all-startransportation.com or call All-Star Transportation at 860-605-9285.


Bus Stop Waiver / Change Request

Bus routes and stops are developed taking into consideration safety and efficiency. To this end, the Region 10 Board of Education may accommodate one permanent Monday through Friday pick-up and drop-off schedule for each child per school year provided it is along established bus routes. In the event of a permanent change to a pick-up and drop-off schedule is needed during a school year, a written request must be submitted to the school principal at least three weeks in advance of such a change.

If you have questions, please e-mail marion.solgovic@all-startransportation.com or call All-Star Transportation at 860-605-9285.
