Alternate Pick-up/Drop-off Locations:
Alternate pick-up and drop-off locations, as well as all permanent bus passes, EXPIRE AT THE END OF EACH SCHOOL YEAR. If you would like your child to be picked up or dropped off at an address other than his/her home address, please submit an "Alternate Site/Bus Pass Form" (link at left) to the Transportation Department by August 11, 2017. For example if your child was being picked up at a babysitter's house this past school year, a new request must be made for the upcoming school year. If we do not receive a request for your child, we will place your child on the route that services his/her home address. For split custody arrangements, your child will be picked up/dropped off at the primary residence as listed in the Parent Portal. If your child needs transportation to/from a second house, please use the form to advise us of this.
Important Safety Reminders for You and Your Child:
have your child dressed for the weather and waiting at his/her bus stop
five (5) minutes before the scheduled pickup time.

in doors and handrails. They are also a tripping hazard for your child

The school offers storage for such items.
