Bus Routes Planned for School Year
Prince Avenue Christian School will have two morning and one afternoon bus routes running during the 2010-11 school year to help parents with transportation to the Bogart campus.
The Athens route will pick up students at three locations. At 7:10 am, the bus will be at the Lowes store on Highway 78 at 7:10 am. The second pick up will be made at the kangaroo store on Hwy 129 N near Athens Tech at 7:30, followed by a stop at the Homewood Hills Shopping Center at 7:30 am. The afternoon drops will be made at the same locations, in the same order at 3:45, 4:00, and 4:15 pm. If needed, a stop will be made at the Beechwood Shopping Center at 4:30 pm.
The Monroe-Good Hope morning route will begin at 7:10 at the Wal-Mart in Monroe, followed by a stop at Grace Baptist Church on the corner of Mears Street and Hwy 11 in Monroe at 7:25. A stop will be made at the Good Hope General Store, if needed, at 7:38, and at the Mount Vernon Church at 7:50 am, also if needed. There is currently no afternoon route to the Monroe-Good Hope area planned. If interested, parents should contact the Johnette Appleby at the school to discuss the possibility of adding the route.
During the afternoon run, parents must pick up the students at the bus door. If the parent is not on time, the student will be taken back to school and will be in After School Care, charges will be applied to the family account.
