ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE A SUBMITTED PAROCHIAL TRANSPORTATION FORM ON FILE.
Batavia currently transports to and from the following parochial schools: Immaculate Heart of Mary, Miami Valley Christian Academy, St. Bernadette, St. Louis, St. Thomas More, and St. Veronica
With the exception of a few St. Louis School students, all parochial students will be picked up on dedicated parochial buses. In the afternoon, those students will get on a dedicated Batavia bus, which will stop and meet with the other parochial buses in the Shayler Park neighborhood. There, all students will transfer to one bus to be delivered to their final destination.
Times are estimated based on anticipated riders and actual times will vary by actual riders. Some parochial buses have multiple schools on the same route, and if one of those schools is out, it will affect times.
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 that ride Batavia buses, we are unable to make bus stop changes to relieve parents of that responsibility. This means, unfortunately we cannot change bus stops simply to allow the parent to monitor the stop from inside their home.
The state sets minimum requirements for school transportation; our hope is to always to 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 and value the partnership with our parents.
