Elementary Shuttle Bus System Information

Beginning fall 2014 the district will group students by grade level at the elementary schools as follows:

Pleasant Avenue School: Pre-K, Kindergarten, First Grade
Glebe Street School: Second and Third Grade
Warren Street School: Fourth, Fifth & Sixth Grade

As part of this school structure, a district shuttle has been created to transport elementary students between the Glebe, Pleasant and Warren buildings as outlined below:

  • Kindergarten students living within .5 miles of Glebe or Warren may sign-up to ride the shuttle between those schools and Pleasant. Kindergarten students who live more than .5 miles from the closest elementary building to their home are eligible to be transported from their homes via traditional busing. Shuttle Examples: A kindergarten student living less than .5 miles from Glebe may go to the shuttle stop at Glebe and board the morning shuttle for a ride to Pleasant and may also ride the afternoon shuttle from Pleasant back to Glebe, where they will meet parents, walk or be picked up. A kindergarten student living less than .5 miles from Warren may go to the shuttle stop at Warren and board the morning shuttle for a ride to Pleasant and may also ride the afternoon shuttle from Pleasant back to Warren, where they will meet parents, walk or be picked up. 
  • Students in Grades 1-6 living within 1.5 miles of any Johnstown elementary school may sign-up to ride the shuttle from that building to their grade level elementary school. At the end of the school day, the shuttle will return them to the closest elementary building to their residence, where they will meet parents, walk or be picked up. Students in grades 1-6 who live more than 1.5 miles from the closest elementary building to their home are eligible to be transported from their homes via traditional busing. Shuttle Examples (other possibilities also exist): A first grade student living less than 1.5 miles from Warren may go to the shuttle stop at Warren and board the morning shuttle for a ride to Pleasant and may also ride the afternoon shuttle from Pleasant back to Warren. A second grade student living less than 1.5 miles from Pleasant may go to the shuttle stop at Pleasant and board the morning shuttle for a ride to Glebe and may also ride the afternoon shuttle from Glebe back to Pleasant. A sixth grade student living less than 1.5 miles from Glebe may go to the shuttle stop at Glebe and board the morning shuttle for a ride to Warren and may also ride the afternoon shuttle from Warren back to Glebe. 

Students must sign up to ride the shuttle bus. The transportation office requires a 48 hour notice for transportation changes. Visit the forms page to download a shuttle registration form.
