BCSC bus routes and car rider information for 2012-13 school year

-- — The procedures for car riders at Batesville Intermediate School and Batesville Middle School will be significantly changed this year, reports Ed Krause, Batesville Community School Corp. transportation and safety director. 

At BIS, parents will no longer be able to access the BIS student drop-off or pickup area from Columbus Avenue.  Instead, they will enter the west BIS parking lot via Fifth Street from West Pearl Street.  After entering the parking lot, they will bear to their right and make drop-offs or pickups along the sidewalk on the right.  They will then continue counterclockwise around the parking lot and exit onto either Fifth Street or County Line Road to return to West Pearl Street.

At BMS the only change for car riders will occur in the morning.  With the conclusion of the BIS construction project, some modifications were made to the rear parking lot at BMS that will finally allow student drop-off to be moved away from Mulberry Street.  “This change should prove much safer for our students, parents and staff,” Krause notes.  

Parents will need to turn north off of West Pearl Street onto First Street, the road that runs along the west side of the old BMS gym.  A new sidewalk has been installed alongside the old gym leading up to the BMS entrance by the band room (Door D).  Students may be dropped off along the edge of the new sidewalk on the right side – not in the middle of the street.  Vehicles will then turn the corner and proceed to Second Street (by Meyers Funeral Home), turn left and return to West Pearl Street.  Students will not be permitted to enter BMS through the main entrance on Mulberry Street until after 8:05 a.m. 

Afternoon dismissal for BMS car riders will be conducted the same as last year, with parents being permitted into the main driveway from Columbus Avenue after the buses have departed.  Detailed instructions, including diagrams, are available at both schools.
