Parent Reminders


Stop times you receive are strictly an estimate. Times may vary by +/- five minutes. This allows a 10 minute window for the school bus to arrive. School buses experience delays due to mechanical breakdown, weather conditions, road conditions, traffic conditions, etc. Please have your children at the loading point five minutes prior to the designated arrival time.


Please send a note if your student(s) are to ride a different bus or if you will be picking your children up early or after school. If you have an emergency message for your student, please call the office before 2:30pm. This will allow the message to be delivered in a timely manner. Students are dismissed at 3:18pm at the secondary building and ready for loading at 3:26pm at the elementary building. It is a busy time of the day in both building offices and your assistance and cooperation is much appreciated.
