School Start Times & Transportation Schedules

  • Elementary Schools

    Monte Cristo: 8:35 am – 3:05 pm
    Mountain Way: 8:45 am – 3:15 pm

    For students who ride a bus to school, the AM bus route will pick up all students on their route, drop off 3rd-5th grade students at MCE, then continue to MWE to drop off K-2 students. The PM route will pick up students first at MCE, continue on to MWE, then run the drop off route.

    Siblings that walk home from school can still walk together! All PM buses will run from MCE to MWE, so older siblings can ride a bus to meet their younger siblings.

    Granite Falls Middle School & High School

    Middle School: 7:35 am – 2:05 pm
    High School: 7:30 am – 2:00 pm

    Bus routes for GFMS and GFHS students for the AM routes will drop off high school students first, then middle school students. PM bus routes will pick up students first from GFHS, then GFMS, and finish routes by dropping off students at bus stops.


    Bus Stop Notice

    Students should be waiting at their designated bus stop five (5) minutes prior to the published stop time. Drivers are instructed not to arrive any earlier than the five minutes and also not to wait at stops for students who are not there. Please help us to be on time by being at your stop five (5) minutes early. 

    Students are allowed to depart the bus only at their assigned stop. Prearranged exceptions can be made by the parent and require a note. For elementary students, the note must be delivered to the school where a bus pass will be issued. For middle and high school students, the note can be given to the bus driver. Only by this procedure will a student be allowed off the bus at a different stop.
