    Transportation Questions:

    The Transportation office at Eastern is located in Room 700 and is open from 6:30am to 2:30pm and is closed for lunch from 11:30am to 12:30pm. The best means of contact is via email to transportation@eccrsd.us. Regular operating hours for a full day schedule are 6:30am to 6:45am, 7:30am to 11:30am, 12:30pm to 1:30pm. The office is closed during school arrival, lunch and school dismissal since the Transportation Coordinator is outside during those times; 6:45am to 7:30am and 1:30pm to 2:30pm. You may contact her outside the building during these hours. However, in the afternoon, administrative approval is required as students may not be outside the building during the school day. Students may visit the office during the scheduled lunch periods. A student visiting during class time or during a study hall must have a pass from the teacher.

    Who do I contact:

    Eastern utilizes the services of contractors in addition to district school buses. Be certain to look in PowerSchool under "Bus Pass" for contact information. Below are contact numbers for the companies transporting students to and from school.

    First Student - 856-753-0222

     The morning bus is late. What should I do?

    • Call the bus company regarding the status of the bus. Each company is able to radio the bus to locate the route in progress. The name and phone number of the company is on the bus pass in PowerSchool. This may only be accessed using a computer. Unfortunately, it is not available on the app. The Transportation Coordinator is outside each morning until each of the buses has reported to the school. No one is in the Transportation Office to receive calls. Messages left on the Transportation Office voice mail will not be received until all of the buses have arrived to campus and the Transportation Coordinator has returned to the office.

    • Please do not wait more than 10 minutes to contact the bus company to check the status of a bus. 

    Schools other than Eastern:

    If your high school student is attending a school other than Eastern; for example CCTS, please contact the bus company who is transporting your student. If problems continue, kindly inform the Transportation Coordinator via email transportation@eccrsd.us for follow-up as well as Camden County Educational Services Commission at 856-784-2100.

    After-School Buses from Eastern:

    A 3:30 late bus is available based on the calendar on the website. Students must follow the late bus procedure to ensure access to the late bus.

    How will I be notified of any delay or cancellation of bus service for the morning bus?

    An automated message is sent when the district is notified of a delay of more than 15 minutes. Routes that are known to be delayed will be posted on the website. It is therefore very important to inform the school of any changes to your contact information.

    I left something on the bus:

    Eastern utilizes the services of contractors as well as district buses to provide transportation.

    Generally, the bus driver will find lost items. However, the driver has several different groups of students every day and may not know who it belongs to. 

    Steps which may be taken:

    In the morning at arrival:

    Inform the Transportation Coordinator who is outside, asap. She may be found wearing a flourescent orange safety vest. The bus company or driver will be contacted to request a complete sweep of the bus. This cannot be done until the bus is parked with no students on the bus. Usually the Coordinator will ask you to stop in the office (Room 700) for an update during the day. Lost items which are found are available from the driver at the end of the day upon the return to Eastern.

    In the afternoon at dismissal:

    Contact the bus company or transportation office for district buses. If/when the item is found, arrangements may be made to pick up the item from the bus company or wait to get it on the next school day. The District Transportation office closes at 2:30 pm.

    Sports:

    Take note of who drove the team; company, driver, and/or bus number. Contact information for each is listed above. If you do not know who drove the team, contact the Transportation Coordinator at Eastern for assistance; 856-784-4441, 1162.
