Welcome to the first day of school. The Transportation Department will be ready to meet the needs for transportation for the 2017-2018 school year beginning today. I encourage each campus to utilize and monitor your radio's for both morning and afternoon bus routes. Call the transportation office for concerns or to speak with me. Traffic will be heavy this week so prepare yourself. Remember our students safety is top priority. Have a great day and year. If buses run late we will notify each campus. Also, if someone misses the bus or does not have a ride please notify us immediately so we can get them picked up for school. Our number is 903-723-0425.

School hours for the Transportation Department will again be 5:00 AM until 5 PM, Monday - Friday.

Changes for this year include a Westwood ISD Transportation School Bus Riders Safety Handbook located on the Westwood Transportation website and a hard copy will be passed out on all campuses.  These rules are less complicated and more user-friendly for both student and parent.  It gives a better overall understanding about how to ride the bus and what is expected.
We will still send out bus cards for all bus riders.  Please fill these out as soon as possible and return to the bus driver of the Transportation Department so we can log each student on a bus route and have a master copy.
The 2017 - 2018 Campus to Campus schedule has also been updated for all Staff.  Use it - it is great for all district employees.

I look forward to serving Westwood ISD in the 2017 - 2018 school year.  The Transportation Department will to "Do what is best for students" and put students first and provide a safe, clean and well-run department for our students.  We will continue to give 100% every day.

All concerns can be called in to the Transportation Department to myself or my assistant, Angela Thompson, at 903-723-0425.

We are currently taking applications for Bus Drivers and Bus Monitors.
If you would like to be considered for employment, feel free to go online and fill out an application or come be and see me for questions. Bus drivers and Bus monitor applications are being accepted.  I look forward to meeting new applicants.

 Thank You,
