Students are going to be given boarding passes the week of August 26. Please read the packet and complete the back page and turn in to the bus driver before September 6. If your student does not turn in the back page they may not be able to ride the bus until we receive it. The information is used to create route descriptions and rosters for that specific route. Also, if your child has any allergies and or medical conditions, please make sure to note on the page so we are aware.
New this year we are implementing crossing paddles for the students who have to cross the street in front of the bus. One side is RED and looks like a stop sign, the other side is GREEN with a yellow smiley face. The driver will be using these to safely cross both loading or unloading students from the bus. Red means to stop it is not safe to cross, Green means it is safe to cross in a safe manner. Please work with your student/s and help us to keep them safe.
