BCSC bus routes detailed

Batesville Community School Corp. presently operates 26 daily bus routes, including two for students with special needs, according to Ed Krause, director of transportation. These routes employ a 60-40 ratio of contractor- to corporation-owned vehicles.

New four-year school bus route contracts were awarded last December for 16 BCSC routes.  As a result, two new faces will appear behind the wheel to greet students as they climb aboard Aug. 15.  Kathy Settles will be driving Route 4, replacing Ron Baker, while Louis Giesting will take over the duties on Route 23, replacing Misti Burris.  Another change involves Route 7, where Connie Luers will return to replace Gary Swain this month after a year off.

Previous full-time drivers Misti Burris, Ron Baker and Gary Swain will remain active as substitute drivers for the coming year.  

Each bus route will provide home to school and back bus service to these schools: Batesville High School, Batesville Middle School, Batesville Intermediate School, Batesville Primary School and St. Louis School. Bus numbers coincide with route numbers.  

In addition, the corporation operates two bus routes, 19 and 19-A, for students with special needs.  These routes serve the entire school district.  Drivers are David Westerfeld, 934-2966, and Jay Pfeiffer, 933-0332.

Kindergartners will be riding the school bus one way – to school for the morning classes or home from the afternoon classes.  There has been a system devised to help children identify their buses during the first few weeks of school.  Next to the number on the right front of each bus will be a figure that the kindergartners will be able to recognize: 1, bird; 2, butterfly; 3, cow; 4, pig; 5, bear; 6, cat; 7, lion; 8, elephant; 9, monkey; 10, dog; 11, rabbit; 12, swan; 13, duck; 14, deer; 15, turtle; 16, fish; 17, camel; 18, horse; 20, seal; 21, squirrel; 22, rooster; 23, whale; 24, snail; and 25, eagle.

New families are advised to carefully read the route descriptions to determine which bus a child should ride. At the end of each, the driver’s name and contact telephone number are listed.
