It is almost time to send the kids off to school.
In order to gear up for that first day, the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District has some advice for what parents can do to prepare for their children riding the bus.
Director of Community and Public Relations for the school district, Sharice Walker, told us where parents can go for bus route information.
"So school is just around the corner, and we realize that folks are kind of in that preparation mode. As you get ready for school, it is really helpful for parents to go online to the website and check their bus stop for the year. You can do that at www.k12northstar.org/transportation, and there's a lookup feature. You can just put your address in there and it will show you the nearest bus stop and which route you're on and sometimes those change, especially if you're moving from elementary to middle school. The stop might not be in the same place, as you're used to. And so it's really helpful to do that ahead of time."
