    Transportation Information

    Students should be at their stop and ready to board AT LEAST 5 minutes prior to the bus stop time listed. 

    Routes for the new school year (2019-20) are being scheduled at this time. Route stops and times are currently posted for both Big Rock and Hinckley regular routes.  

    Students should have only ONE stop for pick-up and drop-off. 

    When checking for a stop and/or time, please look at the general route directions, go to the route and look for you address OR an address near you.  If your exact address is not listed for rural routes, please estimate your pick-up time by finding an address near you and fill out a Student Transportation Form (see link above) using the form provided on this website. 

    The stops and times for Hinckley students shuttling to HBRMS from in-town Hinckley are already posted below.  Your student should wait for the bus at the stop on the list that is closest to your home and use the SAME bus stop daily throughout the entire year. 

    Students shuttling between the schools (HBRES students to HBRMS for example) should be at their school of origin no later than 8:10 AM every morning to catch the bus to the other building. 

    Route pick-up times generally do not change from year to year. Buses do not wait for students who are not at their stop, nor can drivers reroute and come back to pick up a student who has missed the bus. 

    For drop-off at the end of the day, students in K-2 must have a parent or guardian present when they arrive at the stop. If a parent or guardian is not present to receive the student(s), the child(ren)  will be taken back to HBRES and parents will have to pick them up there.
