These families will receive their child(ren)’s final transportation schedule prior to the first day of school. At this time the method of communication has not been determined.
Students should be prepared to secure their equipment properly before they board the school bus to ensure it does not interfere with the safety of the driver and passengers or the safe, expedient evacuation of the vehicle. Certain materials and objects are prohibited on a school purpose vehicle as they could become a projectile on a bus.
The decision to cancel transportation services and/or close schools due to inclement weather, is communicated to parents beginning at 6:30 a.m. primarily through the media. Review our ‘How do I Stay Informed’ page for media outlets and supplementary communication methods.
