You've Got Questions. We Have Answers.

Last fall, the Rush-Henrietta transportation department received calls asking why our school buses are not stopping when crossing railroad tracks near Matthews and Fields Lumber on Lehigh Station Road. These tracks are located just east of the Transportation and Operations Center. The district has been informed that these railroad tracks have been deemed exempt, meaning they are no longer active and school buses are not required to stop.

Often, such questions are posed only on social media, which does not always result in the best answers. The community is encouraged to ask questions directly of school and district personnel who can provide accurate information. 

Here are some ways you can reach out to the district to ask questions:
  1. Contact the district’s main information desk at 359-5000 weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  2. Call the main office of your child’s school during school hours or contact the principal. Contact information is listed below.
  3. Visit the district website and write us at the Contact Rush-Henrietta form.
