Effective Monday, October 22, 2018
Due to the increase in student ridership, students will NO longer be allowed to ride any school bus other than their assigned bus route.  This includes any student wanting to ride to a classmate’s home, riding to grandparent’s home or to any other destination other than their residence.  We will honor the student’s change if it is already in place but no changes will be made after Monday, October 22, 2018
