You may or may not know that Hanover School District No. 28 is the largest district in El Paso County spanning 266 square miles. With 10 experienced drivers, 7 buses and three vans, we run 11 separate routes daily and 3 additional route on Mondays, traveling a solid 1100 miles a day. Our staff takes pride in providing safe and reliable transportation for our kids bringing unsurpassed peace of mind to parents. Our buses are maintained to the highest state of readiness with daily systems inspections conducted by our dedicated and highly-trained staff.
For students that live out east in the Hanover area, each child is picked up and dropped off at their home address. Pick-up and drop-off times for each student is scheduled after annual registration and depends on the number of students being transported.
For students that live in the Midway/PPIR area, students are picked up and dropped off at set bus stops. There are three bus stops in the Midway area for students that attend Hanover Jr/Sr High School. Student’s home addresses will determine which of the three stops they will use. Because elementary-age students living in the Midway area reside only about one mile from Prairie Heights Elementary, they are dropped off and picked up at the school by their parents/guardians.
For students that live behind Pikes Peak International Raceway or live out of district, buses pick up and drop off students for each age group in a large, open area right beside the raceway. There is a separate bus for each school, Prairie Heights Elementary as well as Hanover Jr/Sr High School, that picks up and drops off students.

Dear Parents, Staff, and Teachers,This is not the way I hoped to make first contact with many of you. Unfortunately, the district has experienced an unfortunate failure that has interrupted the water supply to the Admin and JSHS facilities.Because of this, I, with input from the board, have decided to push school opening at least one week, as we assess the issue and devise a remedy. For now, new staff will report on August 9th, all staff will be at District training on August 10th, Building training will take place on August 11th, and classes will begin on August 12th.Please feel free to contact your school or District administrator if you have any questions. As always I am available to talk at any time. We appreciate your patience during this delay.Thank you and we’re looking forward to an excellent new school year for The Hornet Nation.Best,Kyle CooperSuperintendentHanover School District
