Parent FAQs at Registration
Bus Routes will be posted by Wednesday, July 29 at 3pm on the Cafeteria Windows.
Kindergarten and First Grade students along with their parents are invited to ride the bus on Friday
morning, July 31st, as a practice run prior to the first day of school. Buses will run at the regularly
scheduled morning pick up times and parents/students should be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early.
Due to limited space, we ask that you limit the number of additional family members riding. Only school-age
children are allowed to ride as our regular buses are not equipped with car seats. The bus will follow the
planned route to school, unload at the school to allow drivers, parents and students to attend sneak-a-peek,
then (upon an agreed time for all) return everyone to their assigned bus stop. If sneak-a-peek is not scheduled,
the bus will immediately return everyone to their assigned bus stop.
