We Are Closer Than You Think.
With students from over 35 communities in Western Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut, you’d probably be surprised to know how many Cardinals are in your neighborhood! To support our families, we offer free and convenient bus transportation to and from school in the following Western Massachusetts cities and towns: Agawam/Feeding Hills, Chicopee, East Longmeadow, Hampden, Holyoke, Longmeadow, Ludlow, Monson, Northampton, Palmer, South Hadley, Southampton, Springfield, West Springfield, Westfield, and Wilbraham.
Buses within the city of Springfield will not be running at this time nor for the foreseeable future. With the Springfield Public School District currently closed and offering remote only education, they shared that they are not in a position to assume the liability associated with running the buses just for PFPS. The district plans to reevaluate their return-to-school plan in mid-November at which time this situation could change. If we learn of any change in these plans we will inform families immediately.
Springfield students attending Pope Francis Preparatory School during the 2020-2021 school year who are in need of busing must complete the Springfield Transportation Form and return to the attention of Lori Fenton at Pope Francis Preparatory School.
All Other Towns
Students from other surrounding communities will be bused to Pope Francis Preparatory School using Five Star Transportation and must complete the Five Star Transportation Form and return to the attention of Lori Fenton at Pope Francis Preparatory School.
Times and stops may vary due to number of students assigned to a stop, traffic, weather, and other unforeseen factors. A complete listing of bus stop locations is available on the student portal and is updated at the beginning of each academic year.
