The Hollidaysburg Area School District partners with the Fullington Auto Bus Company to provide the highest quality of transportation services available. We will email transportation information out to families at the beginning of August; if you do not receive the email please contact us.
During August and September, we anticipate a high volume of calls concerning transportation issues. If we are not available for your call, please leave a message with a number where you can be reached and we will return your call as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Hollidaysburg Area School District has a full-day kindergarten program. We will transport kindergarten students in the morning and afternoon with the other elementary students from your neighborhood.
