Child Care Locations & District Transportation

Please click on your school below to see which daycare locations are within its transportation boundaries.

The Franklin Public Schools transportation service will pick students up and drop them off at their designated* corner bus stop or a daycare location within the school boundaries in the morning and at the end of the school day. To have your child picked up and dropped off at different locations, please fill out the Alternate Bus Route form.

4K and 5K students sit toward the front of the school bus in the morning and at the end of the school day. Students are personally escorted off the buses and to their classrooms by an adult they know and trust.

At midday, 4K students will be dropped off or picked up in front of their home except when multiple students live in the same area and can be met by parents/guardians as a group at their designated* corner bus stop. If you have questions, please contact Mary Jo Herrmann at (414)525-7634.

*Bus route schedules and designated stops are determined during mid-August and will be sent via- email to all families. After this date, only minor adjustments may be made to the route.
