Additional Information - Henry Abbott Tech and Nonnewaug

Please Note:  Pick Up and Droff Off times are computer generated therefore you must allow a 5-10 minute variation to published times.  Pick Up and Drop Off times and Stop Locations are subject to change due to changing enrollment and traffic conditions. 


The time printed with each bus route is the approximate time the bus will make its first pickup in the morning. Adjustments will be made as necessary and as soon as possible. Please do not worry if a bus is late. It generally takes a few days for kindergarten children and new students to become accustomed to the bus routes and schedules.

Students should be at the appropriate stops 10 minutes before the time listed on the bus route. The stop times can vary 10 minutes either way, depending on traffic, weather, and the number of students riding the bus. 

Students are to wait back 10 feet from the curb and MUST wait for the School Bus to come to a complete stop before moving toward the bus.  Students that cross the road MUST look both ways for traffic and MUST wait for the Driver's signal (head nod) before crossing the road.

High School & Middle School Buses:  In the afternoon half the buses will go to the High School first then the Middle School,  and the other half of the buses will go to the Middle School first and then the High School.  PM line Ups are available at both schools.
