The PVSchools Transportation Department transports more than 10,000 students over a 98-square mile attendance area each day.
Who Can Ride
At the elementary school level, pupils in grades 1 through 6 living more than 1 mile from school are eligible to ride the school bus. Kindergarten students living more than one-half mile are eligible for transportation. At the middle and high school levels, students must live more than one-and-a-half miles from school to be eligible for transportation. To find a bus stop, visit our Bus Stop Finder online tool.
To check on bus arrival times, call (602) 449-2251 until 6 PM.
After that time, call (602) 449-2258.
All Wildfire Middle School students are expected to abide by the bus rules and to show respect for the driver of the bus. Students breaking the rules will be subject to disciplinary action and may suffer the loss of bus riding privileges. Video Monitoring Systems are placed on some transit buses.
Drop Off Procedures and Maps
Please read these guidelines for how to drop off and pick up your Wildfire student from school.
Morning Curbside Drop-off is 8:15 a.m. - 8:40 a.m.
Please help us keep the parking lot safe, respectful, and efficient by demonstrating patience and following the guidelines below. We encourage parents of older children to refrain from dropping off in front of the school unless your child is going to the Multi-Purpose Room or it is after 8:40am.
Many volunteers are needed to make our morning curbside drop off process work as quickly and smoothly as possible. Three to four attendants are needed each day to assist students safely exiting vehicles and getting to the playground. Volunteers are needed to help out for 1/2 hour on any morning. Please see the Volunteer Parking Lot Calendar for details on how you can get involved.
