Changes to Bell & Bus Schedules for SY323
OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss (OSSD) -- In order to accommodate our growing student population, OSSD has elected to adjust school bus routes and bell schedules for all seven campuses for the 2022-2023 school year. Our transportation department will be operating on a 3-tier bus system, which will require fewer buses and bus drivers but will increase start times between our schools. OSSD previously operated on a 2-tier system.
Tier 1 - OSUE (grades 4-6)
Tier 2 - Oak Park, Magnolia Park, & Pecan Park (K-3)
Tier 3 - OSMS & OSHS (grades 7-12)
Pre-K route remains unchanged.
In addition to the slight change in tardy bell times for most of our schools, this new system also means your student’s bus route and bus stop will most likely change. OSSD will communicate later this summer when the adjusted bus routes are ready.
Attached are our updated school bell schedules and 60% days for the 2022-2023 school year, as well as our SY23 Academic Calendar.
