2016- 2017 Bus Routes

  • The bus routes are now posted on the right side of this webpage which is www.graftonps.org/transportation. We have received several requests for changes to bus stops.  We are going to be phasing in bus stop changes over the next two weeks starting with grades K-1 on Monday 9/12 and following with grades 2-6 and then grades 7-12.  After stops are added, we will be posting update routes on this webpage.  The Bus Stop Concern and Change Request Form provided on this webpage should be used to document concerns or you can email businfo@grafton.k12.ma.us.  The posted stop times are estimated only and buses may arrive 10 minutes before or after these times.  Please adjust to actual arrival times as the routes are optimized over the first few weeks of school.  Preschool parents please speak to the school if you require transportation.

    Students on free/reduced lunch get the bus fee waived but we still need you to fill out the applicatoin so that we know your student wants to take the bus.  Please check the box at the bottom that your student is eligible for free/reduced lunch.

    Posted by:

    You should fill out the application by the deadline and check of the box at the bottom saying your child is eligible for free lunch.  If your child ends up not qualifying for free/reduced lunch, we will send you a bill for the bus fee after school starts.  If you would like to pay now, and then you find that your student does qualify, we can refund the bus fee.
