Welcome back to school!

Bus Transportation

All Bus Riders should report straight to the bus when the bus arrives on campus. All K-5 students will be escorted to the bus loading area. Middle School students should not go to elementary classrooms for siblings.

Drop off and Dismissal
Thank you for your patience as we verify parents to connect your children safely with you!

Please review the parent pick-up and drop-off directions if you have any questions.

If you need to change your child's transportation, please send a note to your student’s teacher before 8 AM on the day the transportation change is needed. If there is a situation during the day and a change in normal dismissal is needed, a guardian will need to email mcatransportation@stjohns.k12.fl.us BEFORE 2 PM (1 PM on Wednesdays). Include your elementary child’s name (first and last), grade, teacher and how they need to get home. We do not accept phone calls for transportation changes.
Early Dismissal Checkout – District Policy requires all check-out to be done before 2:00pm (1:00pm on Wednesday). Remember to bring identification with you to the office.
Lunch Accounts
Please check your student's lunch account balance to ensure it has a positive balance. Balances (positive or negative) carried over from last school year.
