After School Transportation
School Dismissal Manager
***Please note that School Dismissal Manager is not live for the 2023-24 school year yet. Be on the lookout for your activation e-mail as the first day of school approaches.
All after school transportation is managed through School Dismissal Manager. Parents can set default transportation modes and make daily exceptions through website or using the SDM mobile app.
***Families will receive an email with temporary login credentials to get their SDM set up. It will appear as though it comes from "Rutledge Elementary," but it is from School Dismissal Manager. If you do not see this email, please check spam and search your inbox for "Parent Credentials."
Please remember that the latest we release early is 2:00. After that time, our dismissal reports and procedures are adversely affected. Also, late in the day, parents may be blocked into the parking lot as the buses arrive and the car rider line queue up.
You can schedule an early pickup through School Dismissal Manager.
You MUST provide official identification to pick up a student early.
***2023-24 Bus Routes have NOT been published.
Once routes are finalized, you may use the District Route Finder to identify your bus route number as well as bus stop locations and times.
There is no bus sign up. Students need only wait at the bus stop in the morning and board the bus when it arrives.
Bus drivers will not drop Kinder, 1st, or 2nd grade riders at a stop if there is no parent present. These young riders will be brought back to the school, and parents will be contacted for pickup at the school.
