Bus Transportation

Students needing to ride a different bus home than normal will need a parent note. These notes are to be brought to the main office for confirmation by the student upon arrival to school. Notes are then given back to the student with approval marked by the office staff. Bus drivers not receiving an approved note from the office will not allow student to ride the bus.
