Activity Bus InformationPCHS and PCMS After-School Activity RoutesThe Platte County R-3 School District is one of the very few public school districts that still provides after-school activities transportation to its students so that they may participate in sports, clubs, practices, and other authorized activities. All costs associated with these after-school activity buses are fully borne by the District, with no funding from the state of Missouri. With increasing costs, ridership, and time constraints, the District has established specific drop-off areas strategically located within the District so that it can continue to offer this service to its students and their families.
Door-to-door and neighborhood service will not be provided, but rather an established scheduled service to a series of bus stops within a short drive or walk to most residential areas, and located at centralized points that serve the most heavily used areas for this service, will operate.
These pre-established drop-off points and scheduled stop times will allow parents to plan accordingly for their students arrival. It will then be the responsibility of the parents to provide for the student's transfer from the bus drop-off point to their home. Although very careful consideration was included in the decision to locate each stop, including parent parking, accessibility, and other factors, they are still centralized, and the bus cannot wait with any students whose parent has not arrived or made other arrangements to pick them up.
PCHS and PCMS After-School Activity Bus RoutesThere will be two activity bus routes that leave Platte City Middle School at 5:00 p.m. and Platte County High School at 5:15 p.m. each day.
These buses are to provide a ride to pre-scheduled zone drop-off points strategically located within the District for students who are participating in after-school activities. Examples are, but not limited to: sports, clubs, practices, and homework haven. Students staying after to serve detention are not eligible to ride the activity bus.
Students must present a bus pass that has been issued by the school for that day upon boarding. Bus stops and times are limited to those which have been established within the attached schedules, and stops within other areas will not be made. It will be the parents responsibility to pick up their students at the established bus stops so that students will not be left at the bus stops. Although very carefully selected for ample parent parking and safety, the bus cannot stay until after it drops off at a particular stop to wait for late-arriving cars for the students.
