Bus Stop and Riding Info Pike Bus Riders

MSD of Pike Township provides bus transportation to and from school as well as field trips, athletic competitions, and other school-sponsored activities. Students will only be allowed to ride their assigned bus. The transportation department would like to remind families that riding the bus is a privilege, not a right. Students that do not follow bus safety procedures or rules could lose the privilege to ride the bus. Bus information is now available for the 2020-2021 school year.

Academic Calendar Approved calendar

Due to our traditional and balanced calendars becoming more aligned, our School Board has approved a universal calendar that will begin in the 2020-21 school year. This fall, we surveyed staff, parents, and the community, which generated feedback for drafting a single calendar. The use of a universal calendar will increase efficiencies and eliminate some operational and scheduling challenges. It will not impact the school assignments of our current students. Eagle Creek, Fishback, and New Augusta North and South will continue as “choice” schools but with a curriculum concentration. The School Board will consider feedback from the district survey and focus group discussions as they finalize the concentration in the new year. Thank you for your patience, input, and support throughout this process.

Here Comes The Bus school bus info

Greetings Pike Family!

Our Transportation Department has partnered with Synovia Solutions, Inc. to provide parents GPS tracking information on the expected arrival time of their child's bus. Please download the Here Comes the Bus App and use access code 74592 and your child's student identification number. Please contact your child's school if you do not have your child's student identification number. Also, log into Skyward Family Access and click on the Bus Tab to view your child's Stop Information.

The first few weeks of school are a busy time of year, and bus routes are subject to change to accommodate new enrollments. As a result, stop times may vary until a routine is established. Please have your child at the stop 10 minutes before the time listed.

The Transportation Department will have phone lines staffed to assist with Bus Information between the hours of 8 AM - 4 PM. You can contact Transportation at 317-280-2450. We are Pike Family, and We are Pike Proud!
