Per District Policy, students who ride the bus must be at the designated school bus stop five (5) minutes before the scheduled pick-up time. Make sure your children leave home on time so they can arrive at the bus stop before it is due. Running after or in front of a bus is dangerous. Students should not wait in the car until the bus arrives! Students must be at their assigned bus stop ready to board the bus. They cannot get on the bus at another bus stop
