Bus Routes

Students are expected to be at the bus stop at least 5 minutes prior to pick up time. If students are inside their cars and not standing at the bus stop at the time of pick up, the bus driver is not obligated to stop. Please note that drop off times on Wednesdays are two (2) hours earlier than normal times, due to early dismissal.
