    Students should use the bus stop that is the closest walking distance from their homes. We strongly recommend that students arrive at their stops 10 minutes before the indicated pick-up time. Bus routes and pick-up/drop-off times are approximate based on enrollment, which can fluctuate, and buses can run a bit early or late on any given day.

    Additionally, parents are cautioned that buses may run late the first few days of school as drivers and families acclimate themselves to new schedules, new routes and, in some cases, new schools.

    Riding the school bus:

    Students are only allowed to ride their own school bus. Children who ride the bus are not allowed to ride another bus to visit a friend, attend an event, etc. Parents will have to make other arrangements for play dates, activities, etc.
