school busThe Franklin Special School District is excited to welcome students back for a half day on Wednesday, August 7. Students will dismiss three hours early, but will have an opportunity to eat lunch before they leave.

Please note that bus stop times may fluctuate the first two weeks of school as ridership stabilizes. Prior to the first day, please confirm your child’s bus stop location and time as these may change each year. The easiest way to check this is by going online to:

Check My Bus Route

We request parents to remain at the bus stop with children 10 minutes before the posted time until the route stabilizes and stop times become more predictable. We also strongly encourage parents of younger students to wait for children at the stop in the afternoon. As a safety precaution, if a young child does not have an older sibling or adult at the stop, or the child expresses a concern about safety, the driver has the discretion to return the child to the school for a parent to pick up.

If you have any questions about your posted stop time, please call the FSSD Transportation Department at 615-790-4704 or email

The 2019-2020 Bus Rules and Regulations can be read by clicking the link below. We encourage you to go over these with your child so the expectations are known before they ever board the bus.
