BUSING

Bus Procedures

Bus students should inform the bus driver if they do not plan to ride the bus. If it is necessary for a student to ride a bus other than the one assigned, the student must bring a note from a parent. In addition, buses are equipped with two-way radios and in the event a parent would like to get a message to a bus driver during the route, they may call the Transportation Director at 668-1050.
