New Year, New School for some Mill Creek Elem Bus Riders

Some Bulloch County elementary school students will be heading for a different school this school year. In an announcement released today by the Bulloch County School System, some students that ride the bus who traditionally attend Mill Creek Elementary School, will now go to either Sallie Zetterower Elementary or Mattie Lively Elementary based on their street address.

The adjustment to bus routes comes as a response to potential overcrowding at Mill Creek Elementary School. The school has a maximum student capacity of 756, with 725 students currently enrolled. The school would therefore be unable to support the projected student population growth for the 2018-2019 school year.

Meanwhile Mattie Lively Elementary School and Sallie Zetterower Elementary were built with excess capacity to meet growing demand. Mattie Lively currently has 624 students with a capacity of 945, and Sallie Zetterower Elementary has 714 students with a capacity of 908.

The move affects only bus riders living in those areas. Students living in the effected areas who wish to remain at Mill Creek Elementary School will be able to do so, however parents will be responsible for providing them transportation to and from Mill Creek Elementary School.

Mill Creek Elementary School Students that ride the bus who live on the following streets will now be transported to Sallie Zetterower Elementary.
