Information regarding School Buses

Hello and welcome to all of our students and parents ! This year we have 210 bus riders on 7 different bus routes, serving Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. (All bus routes can be found on the school web site under Campus Life > Bus > Bus Routes).

We have 8 dedicated Bus Operators driving the buses, with many years of experience: Tozaya Hoes (bus #1); Maria Cadet (bus #2); Thomas Budd (bus #3); Sancho Sison (bus #4); Ali Bodjana (bus #5); Richard Mgongo (bus #6); Nelson Reyes (bus #7); Rick Ellis (Assistant, sub driver).

The safety of your children is always our first priority! All buses completed MD state inspections during the summer and are checked and inspected daily during the school year. The bus department holds Safety-Training Days and conducts regular driver meetings to address any bus related issues that may arise during the school year. The drivers have demanding and important responsibilities. Please help them by reviewing the bus rules with each child to ensure passenger safety.

We strive to provide timely and convenient bus service. We added several new bus stops during the summer and are always willing to look for ways to help our DSW families within our time, distance, and location restrictions.

If you have any questions or would like to consider using the German School bus service, I would be happy to speak with you.
