To calculate your midday pick-up time, subtract your regular morning route travel time from 12:00 p.m.
  • Example 1: If it normally takes 40 minutes to get to school on your regular morning bus, the midday bus will pick you up at your normal bus stop at approximately 11:20 a.m. (12:00 p.m. minus 40 minutes).
  • Example 2: If it normally takes 23 minutes to get to school on your regular morning bus, the midday bus will pick you up at your normal bus stop at approximately 11:37 a.m. (12:00 p.m. minus 23 minutes).  
Be sure to be out at your bus stop at least FIVE minutes early!

BOCES Students

Students will have regularly scheduled classes at BOCES during exam week. The normal BOCES buses will run from IHS (see above). If a BOCES student is scheduled for an exam at IHS, it is their responsibility to notify the Attendance Office at BOCES.

All BOCES students who have a test at IHS that conflicts with their BOCES class should get a Test Conflict Form from their BOCES teacher. The form should be filled out by the IHS teacher and returned to the BOCES teacher. IHS teachers need to be sure students have filled out the form to avoid being marked truant by their BOCES teachers.
