|Bailey's Upper Elementary School is scheduled to open in September.|
School buses traveling to the new Upper Bailey’s Elementary School in the morning will transverse the Ravenwood, Ravenwood Park, Buffalo Ridge, and Sleepy Hollow Manor neighborhoods, according to a draft outline of the bus routes prepared by Fairfax County Public Schools.
Upper Bailey’s ES is being developed in a former office building at 6245 Leesburg Pike, Seven Corners, to relieve pressure on the severely overcrowded existing Bailey’s Elementary School for the Arts and Sciences.
Another route calls for a bus to pick up students in Culmore, then travel along Leesburg Pike, turn left on Patrick Henry Drive, pick up more students in Ravenwood, then get back on Leesburg Pike, turn left on Castle Road, proceed along Castle Place, Sleepy Hollow Road, and Leesburg Pike, making a right turn into the new school.
In the afternoon, five routes call for buses to exit the school by turning right onto Leesburg Pike, right onto Nevius Street, left onto Knollwood, and back to the old Bailey’s ES. The other bus would exit onto Leesburg Pike, turn right on Patrick Henry and drop off students throughout the Ravenwood area.
