Throughout the past two school years, Fort Zumwalt School District has strived to maintain the level of quality services we have always provided our students and their families. As labor issues have tightened across the country, Fort Zumwalt has been able to maintain services to a level where students have been unaffected. Unfortunately, the strains in these areas might, on some days, become insurmountable. The greatest difficulty in maintaining services has come in our transportation department, which typically serves up to 12,000 students a day. Due to the unpredictable nature of these issues, we are asking all parents to pay extra attention to messages from Fort Zumwalt School District.

Any messages regarding late bus routes or canceled bus services will come to you via phone call, email and text, if you have opted in for that service. If you have downloaded the free Fort Zumwalt app, you can also receive these messages as notifications there. It is imperative that your contact information in our data system is current. You can update your information in a few easy steps. There is a video to help you through the steps.
