AMITE—Leading up to Thursday’s start of the 2018-19 school year, parents can now find information about their child’s school bus route on the Tangipahoa Parish School System website.

Tangipahoa Parish School Superintendent Melissa Stilley said routes have been finalized and information is available in the “School Bus Look-Up” tool on the district website at

To use the tool, parents enter a service location into the “address que” at the prompt on Enter the child’s grade level and press the “go” button and the look-up tool will search for the child’s school name. Click on the school your child will attend and the tool will provide the specific driver assigned to transport your child, along with the bus number and a contact phone number for the driver, in case the parent has questions.

Stilley said that drivers are calling parents Wednesday evening to introduce themselves and offer estimated pick up and drop-off times for the route. “These times are subject to change over the next few days as our rolls become more finalized,” Stilley said.

If your child has been approved to transfer to another school other than the school in the zone where you reside, please contact the TPSS Transportation Department at 985-748-2423 as soon as possible to find out your child’s assigned school bus.

Parents who would like the district to transport their children to after-care locations or daycares at the close of the school day must submit special transportation request applications now to make those accommodations. Stilley said those applications will be reviewed by the district transportation office and approvals should be released as early as next week.
