Welcome back from the transportation department. We hope everyone and a fun filled and relaxing summer break and we are looking forward to a safe and exciting new year.

Please check back often as this information will update often.
Getting OUR children safely to and from school is a shared responsibility.
Please remember that Ohio law requires that parents are responsible for their children until they enter the bus. Due to the large number of students who ride Batavia buses, we are unable to make bus stop changes to relieve parents of that responsibility. This means, unfortunately, that we cannot change bus stops simply to allow the parent to monitor the bus stop from inside their home.
The state sets minimum requirements for school transportation; our hope is to always provide better and more convenient service than the state minimum. We must balance that with the need to be efficient and safe for all students, and so we appreciate the partnership of parents in making sure that students are at their assigned stop safely and on time.
