Seeking parents help to provide bus to Cony

To the parents of RSU #12 students: Our school superintendent Howard Tuttle, as well as the districts finance and transportation committees, are working with local parents to organize bus transportation to Cony High School, in Augusta.

The proposed bus schedule would have morning and afternoon pick up points, beginning from Chelsea Elementary School, down Rte. 17 to Peaslee’s Quick Stop, Somerville Road and Rte. 105 (pending) and past Hussey’s General Store, up Rte. 105 to Cony High School.

The proposal would require 20 students to cover the cost of the bus. The cost would be approximately $350 per student a school year. This is less than $2 for the round-trip service. The cost would go down if there are more than 20 students. This is similar to that of Erskine Academy. The proposal for the Cony bus would require an upfront payment in full.

We are excited to get this bus service for our students. If you are interested or have additional questions please contact Toni Turner at 549-9024 or
