It's almost time: Opening day for students is now .
And after to fine tune the schedule, which had already gone through due to the budget reduction of two school buses, the final version of the 2012-13 school bus routes have been released.
The list — which also include the local East Haven bus routes for St. Vincent's, Lyman Hall, The Sound School and Platt Tech — are attached to this article as a PDF document. There are a total of 28 routes in all this year.
Because of the large number of changes, Durham School Services, the company that operates and manages the district's bus service, is asking families to make sure they are at their scheduled stops "a minimum of 45 minutes prior to the start time of your school."
