IMPORTANT SCHOOL BUS INFORMATION - Special permission to ride a different bus will not be granted due to overcrowding on the buses. Students must ride their assigned bus.
NEW THIS YEAR... WE HAVE AN AFTER HOURS ACTIVITY BUS. Transportation will be available for all middle school students who are participating in after school extracurricular activities (sports, clubs, etc), students who are receiving after school tutoring, and students who are fulfilling other district code of conduct requirements. The after school activities bus will run Monday through Thursday, and pick up students from school at approximately 5:30 pm to transport them home.
