Contact Child Find to locate bus rider students who have not made it to their home or stop location.
At Polk County Public Schools, ensuring that all students arrive at school and return home safely is a top priority. At the beginning of the school year, some students — particularly elementary students who are new to riding buses — may be confused by the transportation system. If your school is notified of a lost student, you should immediately contact Support Service’s Child Find Team for assistance.
The Child Find system is open for the first 3 weeks of school and is constantly monitored during this period.
When contacting the Child Find team to request assistance, submit as much detail as possible. Support Services will immediately begin working to locate the child.
