Due to serious liability and safety concerns with bussing children, the district has asked us to strictly adhere to the bussing policy.
The policy states that drivers are not authorized to allow children to change buses or stop at unassigned spots.
Transporting children to such activities as parties, scouts, sleepovers, achievement days, piano, etc. will not be allowed. Students not on the regular passenger list will not be permitted to ride the bus. If you feel you must request an exception to this policy, because of extenuating circumstances, (ie: a relative may be taking care of your children while you are out of town), you will need to fill out and get signed a copy of the bussing form from the school office. You may also call the transportation supervisor at 476-7937 if you have concerns. We appreciate your cooperation with this important safety issue.
