  • Remember to send a written excuse for absences (an easy-to-use form can be found on the school blog)

  • There is no dismissal after 1:45



  • We will not be able to accept guest riders on buses until further notice

  • All transportation changes must require a written note.

  • Students are never tardy if they ride the bus.

  • Make sure that your child has given the bus driver the “Safe Driver Contract”.\
