Transportation for Bagdad Students

Welcome Bulldogs

Here is some important information about arrival and dismissal.

BUS- If you are outside the district’s 1/2 mile radius from the school you can select to have your student ride the bus. You can contact the Transportation Department

Board Policy 8.31 sets the reasonable walking distance as 2 miles from the school. Florida Department of Education Policy 6A-3.001(3) further sets the reasonable walk zone as one and one-half (1 1/2) miles between the home and the assigned bus stop.

Grades K – 5 Up to 1/2 mile (Kindergarten parents/guardians need to be at the bus stop location with photo ID for drop-off and pick-up).

CAR RIDER- Parents may arrive for Drop-off and Pick-up NO EARLIER THAN 30 minutes prior to drop-off start time 6:45 AM, and pick-up start time 1:30 PM. Car Tags are required for pick-up. Please have your child ready to exit your vehicle from the PASSENGER side only.

DIRECTIONS FOR CAR RIDER LINE: From Forsyth Street take Bushnell St. to Water St. (Dead End) turn right and follow to Oak St., turn right and continue to our Drop-off/Pick up point. Please do not use Simpson St. (Back of school). This is reserved for local home owners to bypass the lines as well as school delivery trucks. You will be asked to turn around and use our established directions. In addition to avoiding Simpson St., avoid Dorr St. This is reserved for Buses only. For safety reasons have your child ready on the passenger side of your vehicle and wait for one of our staff members to open the door. Your student will then walk to the gate and cars will then move forward when directed by assigned safety person with Stop/Go sign.

WALKER- This method must be approved by Principal Tiphanie Sapp and is based on location of residence within a .5 mile and age/grade of student. Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st Grade students are not able to walk unless escorted by parent. Students will wait at the crosswalk until directed to cross by our crossing guard. The crossing guard will let your student into the school.
