Bus Routes

IMPORTANT: Please be advised that during the first few weeks of school you may experience a high number of bus delays. The delays are common due to the verification that students are getting on and off at their assigned bus stop and route changes. The routes should stabilize two to three weeks after the beginning of school. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
