Please keep in mind that the bus schedules will change during the 1st week of school as we adjust routes to insure they are on time.  Parents/ Students with bus changes will be contacted and advised of the new bus # or pick up/drop off time, well before school starts. Please keep in mind that these are the changes and not the whole route.  Routes remain the same as last year except for the changes noted here.

New students: Parents, when you register your child please make sure that you complete the transportation request form. Turn into the school secretary and we will assign a bus and communicate the times to you as soon as possible.

If your child is not riding the bus, please indicate that and turn into the school secretary.

PARENTS- If your child is no longer riding the bus regularily, please let us know asap. We still have a very high " Ghost Rider" count on the routes and this impacts our ability to properly balance routes, provide efficent service and report accurately to  OPI, State and Federal agencies. Please contact me asap if your child has aged out and no longer riding.  Thanks!
