Bus routes will NO LONGER be posted in the newspapers. Bus routes can be found on the District & School Websites and will be updated if changes occur. Students will be given a “Mandatory Bus Registration & Rules” form during the first week of school. ALL BUS STUDENTS (even those currently registered) are required to have it completed, signed and returned to their bus driver by SEPTEMBER 13, 2018. Failure to do so will result in loss of bus privileges. This will be done at the start of every school year.
Follow the link for current bus stop information.
