Please contact Sharon Sandri at Grayslake Middle School (847-543-5329) if there will be changes to your child's transportation. Once the school year has started there will be no changes made to transportation until after September 15.
All routes have a designated start time. Once the busses start their route they do not wait at each stop. Please have your child at your designated bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled pick up time. Keep in mind when the weather and road conditions are bad, it will affect the bus schedule.
During the winter months when heavy snowfall can sometimes block a bus stop, the driver can drop off or pick up at the nearest cleared driveway.
If your child must take a different bus to school or home from school due to an emergency, the district office must receive something in writing. Letters can be faxed to Sharon at (847) 223-3526. Notes given to the bus driver asking for a change in bussing will not be accepted. Bus changes are not allowed to accommodate play dates due to the number of available seats on bus routes.
When busses are late due to inclement weather, traffic or road conditions, Durham will do everything possible to ensure the safety of our students. Drivers of all routes will work together to pick up students as quickly as possible. If your student has been waiting longer than 20 minutes, please call the bus company at (847) 543-9244 to report their location.
