Coppell ISD Bus Transportation Update - Aug. 5th

August 5, 2022

Dear Coppell ISD Bus Riders,

Coppell ISD and our bus transportation provider, Durham School Services, are looking forward to providing our student bus riders with safe transportation to and from school.

For the start of the 2022-2023 school year, most CISD students, Dual Language learners and Pre-Kindergarten students who have (1) completed enrollment; (2) requested transportation services; and (3) qualify for transportation services will be provided bus stop and stop time information via email no later than the end of business day on Friday, August 12.  For more information, visit www.coppellisd.com/transportation.

For Special Education transportation students, bus stop and pick-up times will be communicated directly to parents by Durham School Services.

In addition, Durham Transportation will not be distributing bus passes prior to the first day of school on Wednesday, August 17.  Bus passes will be distributed via the schools prior to Tuesday, September 6. Therefore, families do not need to pick up a bus pass for their children to ride the bus when school starts on August 17. Bus passes will be required starting on Tuesday, September 6. 

As a reminder, CISD buses run on a three-tier bus system, which means we run the elementary bus route first, then middle school and then high school. There may be some minor delays in morning pick-up times, especially during the first week of school.  We ask for your patience during this time.

Please note, the Durham Bus Tracking App will not have student bus route information and will not begin tracking the buses until the bus routes have been assigned and shared with families.  This information will be available on the app when school begins on August 17.

We look forward to providing our students with safe transportation to and from school starting on Wednesday, August 17.  If you have any questions, please visit www.coppellisd.com/transportation, email transportation@coppellisd.com or call 972-304-8012.

Sincerely,

CISD and Durham School Services
