School bus information is posted in the Home Access Center of the eSchoolPlus student records system. If you have not activated your child's HAC account and need some assistance, please contact the building secretary at your child's school, who will be happy to assist you. If you do not have internet access at home, there are computers at the Bethel Park Library, and the librarians there will also be happy to assist you.
Transportation Procedures During Delays and Cancellations
Bethel Park School District Families:
Sometimes, the passage of time will enable road crews to clear the roads and allow busses to warm up and transport children safely to school. If a 2-hour delay is called, students should arrive at their bus stops or school two hours later than usual.
When a 2-hour delay is called, all Bethel Park Kindergarten students will be on a Modified Kindergarten Schedule as follows:
- Morning Kindergarten will attend from 11:20 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Afternoon Kindergarten will attend from 2 to 3:40 p.m.
Modified Kindergarten equalizes instruction for both Morning and Afternoon Kindergarten students to 1 hour and 40 minutes. Please note the Modified Kindergarten schedule that will be used on all days with a 2-hour delay.
Parents, please also be reminded that on days with delays, building staff is also on that delay, so there may not be anyone at the front door to let your child into the building should they arrive too early. Please do not drop your child off at school before the delayed starting time.
In an emergency closing, all parents should have prior arrangements made for their children. As it is not always possible to contact each person through the school's emergency calling system, children should know what to do or where to go if parents are not home during the emergency dismissal.
When there is a 2-hour delay for inclement weather in the Bethel Park School District, all Bethel Park students who attend non-Bethel Park School District schools will be transported to school two hours later than usual.
