Transportation-Key Points This information is preliminary (Stops won’t likely won’t change, but times could) Confirmation letter will arrive in August with times and stop, based on your home address Parents can request a change to an EXISTING stop, if it is more convenient (i.e. caretaking needs) Some students were not designated a stop as it would be easier to drop off at the school We do encourage all students to ride the bus, but if parents are dropping off, no cars are allowed in driveway until all buses have left school property
