From the desk of Rod Fletcher, Headmaster:
Brook Hill is growing, and we’re working to make our school even better as we continue to put the needs of our families first. As you have probably heard, we started morning bus runs from south Tyler and Jacksonville for our students in Kindergarten through 12th grade, helping make the morning commute for our families even easier.
Each morning of the school week, Brook Hill sends two buses into Tyler and one bus into Jacksonville to collect students. Each bus is driven by a CDL (“Commercial Driver’s License”) carrying employee of The Brook Hill School and the program is directed and overseen by the school’s new Transportation Coordinator, Mr. Bill Littlefield.
There are two morning runs on each of the three routes each day. The first run (or Early Run) collects Middle School students and delivers them to the Brook Hill campus by 7:10am in time for Middle School Athletics.
The Early Run routes and schedules:
- Arrive First Christian Church – Tyler 6:25am (Depart 6:30am)
- Arrive Colonial Hills Baptist Church – Tyler 6:40am (Depart 6:45am)
- Arrive Lanes Chapel UMC – Tyler 6:45am (Depart 6:50am)
- Arrive First Baptist Church – Jacksonville 6:40am (Depart 6:45am)
The second run (or Normal Run) collects Lower School, Middle School and Upper School students and delivers them to the Lower School Campus and Middle/Upper School Campus by 8:10am and 8:15am, respectively.
The Normal Run routes and schedules:
- Arrive First Christian Church – Tyler 7:35am (Depart 7:40am)
- Arrive Colonial Hills Baptist Church – Tyler 7:50am (Depart 7:55am)
- Arrive Lanes Chapel UMC – Tyler 7:45am (Depart 7:50am)
- Arrive First Baptist Church – Jacksonville 7:40am (Depart 7:45am)
On Wednesday mornings, the Early Run routes will run at the same time as they do on the other days of the week. However, due to weekly Chapel Schedule the Normal Run will run one (1) hour later than it does on the other days of the week.
The cost for the morning busing service is $120 per month for the first child riding the bus and $108 per month for each sibling riding the bus. Payments can be made annually, bi-annually or monthly via bank draft or online payment.
A 2 or 3 day per week riding option will be made available depending on seat availability on each of the different buses. Pricing for the part-time riding service will equate to $6 per day. So, for example, a child riding the bus two (2) days per week would pay $12 per week ($48 per month).
