School Messenger App

We are excited to announce that the SFDRCISD Transportation Department will be implementing the School Messenger App as a new communication tool to keep you informed about substitutions and delays in bus routes. This app is designed to enhance our ability to communicate with parents effectively. To ensure you stay connected, please follow the steps below to get started:

      1. Download the School Messenger App: You can find the School Messenger App on both the Apple App Store and Google Play. Please download and install it on your smartphone.
      2. Create an Account: During the setup process, you will be prompted to create an account. Please use the email address that is registered with the school district.
      3. Verify Your Account: After creating your account, you will receive an email for account verification. Follow the instructions in the email to verify your account.
      4. Join the Appropriate Group: To receive updates specific to your child's bus route, you will need to join the "group" associated with their route. Group codes are available on our transportation web page.

Detailed instructions and a list of group codes are available here on our web page. If you encounter any issues or require assistance, our transportation department is here to help. You can reach us at 830-778-4222.

We believe that the School Messenger App will improve our communication with parents and help us provide a safer and more reliable transportation service for your child. Thank you for your cooperation, and we look forward to keeping you informed through this new platform.


Bus Routes

The SFDRCISD Transportation Department is pleased to announce the release of the 2023-2024 School Bus Transportation Schedule. Parents should note that generally at the beginning of each school year, scheduled bus times are approximated and subject to change based on adjustments to routes (e.g., substitute drivers, doubling of routes), bus ridership and adjustments based on the number of bus stops each driver has to make. This process usually takes approximately 7-10 days.

The safety of all bus riders is the school bus driver’s primary job. Transportation needs your assistance in helping your children have a safe bus ride to and from school. Please review the traffic and bus safety rules below with your child. Once you have completed this step, please fill out and return the bus ridership form at the bottom of the page and return it promptly to your child’s bus driver.
