McRae Shuttle Bus Service
Beebe School District offers a school bus shuttle service for 5th and 6th grade students who will attend classes on our McRae campus. The shuttles depart from the Beebe Campus at regular intervals between 7:15 and 7:35 every morning. There is a duty teacher on site to ensure that everyone gets to the shuttle buses safely.
If students ride a regular route bus, that bus will pick them up at their regular bus stop and drop them off at the shuttle drop-off point where they will then board a shuttle bus to McRae. Parents may also drop off students at the shuttle drop. In the afternoons, shuttle buses bring the McRae students back to the Beebe campus where they will then get off of the shuttle bus and board their regular route bus for the trip home. If you have any questions or concerns about the shuttle buses, please contact our Transportation Department at 501-882-5463x1200.
