In response to the May vote our district is now providing transportation for all students.  Over the summer several bus routes have needed to be adjusted to make that change.  Please check the school website at, click on parents and then on transportation for an alphabetical listing of roads and their corresponding pick up times.  Please keep in mind times are approximate and may need to be adjusted based upon any new enrollments after the start of the school year.   Students should be outside ready for pickup at least 10 minutes before their scheduled pick up time.  Please note the shuttles between the High School/Elementary School and the Middle School will remain in place for those who choose to walk to the nearest campus.
