Yellow Bus Lunch and Learn

     During these unprecedented times, Duval County Public Schools is committed to providing support to our students. Duval County Public Schools knows that students need to be fed both academically and nutritionally.  In addition to providing resources to students at any traditional, district managed school, grab-and-go lunch and snacks are available to elementary, middle and high school students at select bus stops.  Additionally, educational materials are available for elementary school students at the bus stops.        

    Our primary goal is to provide access to these services at locations which will reach as many of our students and families as possible.  The distribution locations, school and bus routes, jointly have been created to accommodate all students in the District.   Please know that students who live within 1.5 miles of their school are required to walk, per school board policy. 


    How to find a bus stop

    The routes are based on elementary school boundaries, neighborhood elementary school.  Parents whose children attend DCPS as magnet, ESE, ESOL, Choice, middle school, or high school will not have their usual school buses running.  To find your neighborhood elementary school, use the My School Location tool.

    The bus routes are listed by neighborhood elementary school.  Once the neighborhood elementary school has been identified, look at the bus route(s) assigned to that school to find the bus stop which is most convenient.  Although the routes are listed by elementary schools, all grade levels from any school will be provided a lunch at the stop location.  The routes have been designed to efficiently accommodate as many students as possible without causing a major traffic impact.  These stop locations are for every student at every level.  Elementary school students will also be able to receive educational materials. 

    Routes for Yellow Bus Lunch and Learn have ended for the regular school year.  Summer Yellow Bus Lunch and Learn routes are scheduled to begin June 8th, 2020 and can be found at:  Summer Yellow Bus Lunch and Learn


    If you find a bus stop that you would like to use

    There is no need to call Duval County Public School Transportation.  Go to the stop at the listed time.  The buses are scheduled to service each stop for 10 – 15 minutes.  However, service will continue until all students receive the needed resources.  Please be patient and flexible, these are unprecedented times which present some unusual challenges.  As always, be courteous and respectful of the property we will be operating on, whether public or private.  Please do not litter or improperly dispose of items at the schools or bus stops leaving a mess for others to cleanup.


    If your neighborhood school is not listed

    There are 30 elementary schools which do not have school bus services within their boundary areas.  These schools represent schools which have no boundary or eligible students live within 1.5 miles of the school.  Meals and educational materials will be available at those school sites.  These schools will not have bus routes assigned to them. 


    If your neighborhood site is listed but you prefer to go to your neighborhood school

    There are 74 elementary / K8 schools offering bus services.  School sites with bus service will continue to provide meal service from 11 AM – 1 PM at the school in addition to the school bus service. 

    If you have questions about the route, please call 904-858-6200

    Should you have any questions or concerns about  your student’s educational materials or meals please call your student’s school of attendance.
