(Note: Bus schedules are posted for all primary school bus routes. The District is aware that some students may have more than one bus stop and is working to post additional bus schedule information for those students as soon as possible.)
Parents/guardians may log in to Skyward via the “Student Information System” link on the District’s website, www.marsk12.org, (or directly at https://skyward.iscorp.com/scripts/wsisa.dll/WService=wsedumarsareapa/seplog01.w) using the login information provided by the District.
After logging in to Skyward, each student’s individual bus schedule may be viewed by clicking on the “Students” tab, then “Student Profile.” Parents/guardians may then scroll down in the left-hand column and select “Busing,” then “Bus Stops.” Each student’s pick-up and drop-off times will be displayed in the main section on the right-hand side of the page.
Parents/guardians with any changes in bussing needs because of daycare arrangements or relocations are asked to contact the District’s Transportation Office at [email protected] by no later than 3 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 8. The District will make every effort to accommodate bussing requests. (Note: No changes to bus schedules will be permitted from Tuesday, Aug. 9, through Friday, Sept. 12.)
