Welcome to the
Office of Food Services and Transportation
Our “Nutrition Mission” at Dover Area School District is to provide proper nutrition for the physical and educational needs of our students. Our Food Service Departments offer both breakfast and lunches that are well balanced and meet the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program Regulations. We offer daily selections of fresh fruits, vegetables, and low fat dairy that meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and USDA recommendations.
The goal of the Transportation Services side of our department is to provide safe, effective and efficient transportation to and from school. The Dover Area School District provides busing for students in Grades K-12 every school day. Bus assignments and bus stops are determined by August of each school year, and parents/guardians are notified of their child's bus information before the start of school. Bus information will be posted in Skyward under the “Family Access” tab. School rules apply at the bus stop and during the bus ride. Parents and guardians are encouraged to reinforce appropriate bus behavior with their child. If you have any concerns about your child's bus stop or bus assignment, please contact the District at (717) 292-3671, ext. 80205. Concerns about bus or bus stop behavior should be addressed with your child's school principal.
Please remember that kindergarten students must be met by a parent or guardian (or a family appointed adult) at their bus stop each day. If no one is there to meet the kindergarten student, the bus driver will not allow the student to depart from the bus. The student will be taken back to their school for parent or guardian pick-up.
