All students who already ride the bus just to get to town (Coldwater, Bronson, and Quincy) will ride their normal busses.
Coldwater students will be dropped off at the back of CHS where they will be picked up by bus #24 at approximately 7:30am to be brought out to Girard. Remember, as a Franklin student you are not allowed in the high school during the school day, so you should not be walking through the building or going into their cafeteria.
Bronson and Quincy students ride your normal school busses to BACC, where a BATA bus should pick you up at approximately 8:20 and bring you to Girard. Students are to get off their busses and immediately board the BATA bus.
In town, Coldwater students have 3 options to ride the BATA bus to Girard:
Special Note: Only Bronson and Quincy students may board the Coldwater bus at BACC. Remember to follow all BACC rules which include not going into the building.
BATA will be at their regular stops two hours later than normal:
Arrive: 10:30am, FHS
Coldwater students need to get to one of the above locations.
Quincy students will be picked up by BATA at Jennings Elementary at approximately 9:45am.
Bronson students will be picked up at McDonald’s at approximately 9:30am.
BACC students will be picked up at BACC at the front door at about 11:25am by a Coldwater Bus and will be brought to Girard. PM students will be taken back to the center at about 11:35am.
When FHS students have a half day and the rest of the County has a full day, Coldwater busses and BATA busses will get you home.
When Bronson has a half day, a BATA bus will take you home. You must let the office know that you will need a bus.
When Quincy has a half day, a BATA bus will take you home. You must let the office know that you will need a bus.
If Quincy or Bronson is closed and Coldwater/FHS is open, contact the office for further information. If they are closed because of bad roads, we will not send out a bus. If they are closed because of other reasons (conferences, etc.) we would probably send out a BATA bus.
Bronson and Quincy students will be picked up at approximately 2:15pm by a Coldwater bus and will be taken back to BACC where they can board their respective busses.
Coldwater students who are caught up on credits and who need early bussing will follow the same schedule. They will be dropped off at BACC and may board a bus back to the High School.
The above BATA bussing will be provided at no cost to the student. Any other BATA bussing arranged individually by a student will be their own financial responsibility.
All Bus students are reminded that while they are at CHS, BHS, QHS, and BACC, they are not to go into the building unless there is an emergency. They must notify the office immediately that they are in the building.
