Dear Parents/Guardians and Families,
Thank you for sharing your concerns.
HISD transportation department informed us today that PowerSchool and their scheduling system has a huge glitch a week ago. They are working with routing department to get the issue resolved. We were told that all the bus requests sent out before the summer break must re-send bus requests again. Ms. Lopez and Ms. Flores are working on resending the requests for each student. The new request will be processed within 10 business days. Bus rosters will update to school every two weeks. The earliest time your child will get on the bus will be on Step 6th 2022.
If you cannot wait for them to re-route (for those who bus route got cancelled), Please contact HISD The Routing & Scheduling Team with your child first, last name, student ID and address.
Yolanda Grayson, Sr. Routing & Scheduling YYELL@houstonisd.org
Stephanie Reece, Team Lead Routing & Scheduling Stephanie.Reece@houstonisd.org
Pavia Powell, Team Lead Routing & Scheduling. PPOWELL1@houstonisd.org
They will be able to get your child into a route quickly.
Please noted, in order to take the school bus, student MUST reach 5-year-old by September 1st 2022, meaning they must be 5 years old to ride the bus alone for SY 2022-23.
