  • It is very confusing to young children to alternate between day care, parent pick-up and buses. Additionally, accepting changes by telephone does not allow us to provide maximum safety measures for students. If transportation arrangements for students need to change on any given day, you must send a written note to your child's teacher. In this note, you need to include the following information: your child's name, your name, his/her usual transportation home, the new arrangements home and your signature. We cannot accept requests by phone, fax, or e-mail to alter arrangements. A transportation change form must be issued from the school office in order for a student to ride a different bus. Students will not be permitted to board another bus unless they have a transportation change form which will be issued only for an emergency. These are available on our website and the weekly parent newsletter.


  • Gwinnett County provides bus transportation for all students. Please help us diminish traffic problems and support our bus program by having your child ride the bus to and from school. If you have concerns about the bus route or bus safety, please call the school or the Transportation Department at 770-513-6846. Each student is assigned a bus at the beginning of the year. If you move, or your permanent transportation changes, come to the front office to fill out a Simonton ES transportation change form. Riding the bus is a privilege. Inappropriate behavior on the bus will result in an administrative referral and possible bus suspension.


  • Students should be dropped off and picked up only through the Car Rider/Parent Pick-Up line.

    • Morning – Morning Drop Off will be from 7:45 until 8:15 am. The gate in the car rider lane will close at 8:15 am. Students should be in the building by 8:15 am in order to give them time to make it to their classroom before the bell rings. Staff will be on duty to monitor your child when you drop them off in the morning. They may not exit the car until the 7:45 bell has rung. If you are in the Car Rider line at 8:15 and your child has not entered the school, they will be considered tardy. A sign will be posted when the bell rings. If you see the sign, your child is already tardy and we ask that you drive around to the front. Park in a regular parking space to check your child in at that time. Please do not attempt to drop off your child in front of the school prior to 8:15 am. In order to ensure the safety of all students, this is not allowed between 7:45 and 8:15 am.
    • Afternoon - Remember to always have your car rider number displayed in your vehicle window. Enter the car rider lane and drive around to the sidewalk by the gym. Wait for a staff member to signal that it is safe for your child to enter or exit your vehicle from the passenger side only. Car riders will be dismissed to the gym where they will wait for their name/car rider number to be called.
  • NOTE: There are a finite number of cars that can make it through the line during the thirty minutes. Students who ride the school bus will not be counted tardy if the bus arrives late; however, those who come as car riders (regardless of weather or traffic) are considered tardy after 8:15 am. Please plan to be in the car rider line no later than 8:00 to ensure your child will not be late.
