Changes to After School Bus Pick Up

We are changing our bus procedures. Starting on March 4, 2019, the bus routes will no longer be announced over the PA system and students should not wait in front of the Administration Building for the bus. Instead, all students who are catching the bus will wait in the cafeteria for they wait for the bus to arrive. They will be monitored by security. When their bus arrives, security will call out the route number and the students will board the bus.

If you ride the bus, it is your responsibility to arrive in the cafe to listen to for your bus. Ms. Annette will not longer be announcing buses over the PA.
