Practice Riding the Bus

Kindergarten and First Grade students along with their parents are invited to ride the bus on Friday morning, July 28th, 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 and return everyone to their assigned bus stop.
