Kindergarten & First Grade Transportation Guidelines
Buses will not drop off a kindergarten or first grade student if a parent or previously designated adult is not at the stop to receive the student. (An exception is if a student has an older sibling also getting off the bus at the same time). If there is no one at the stop to receive your child, the bus will continue on its route dropping off the remaining students. It may stop back or return the child to his/her school.
Celebrating Birthdays at School - The District has updated their policy regarding student birthday recognition including a limitation on edible forms of birthday treats from an outside source. Please visit this link to review the complete details.
