Dear Parents and Guardians,
To ensure the safety of our students, all students MUST have a written and signed note or an email from their parent or guardian for permission to be transported on a bus that is not assigned to them. A phone call to the office is not sufficient. We MUST have requests in writing in the office by 12:00 pm.
Please click on this link, Bus Permission Slip/Approved Bus Pass Information, for detailed information on this policy, which was sent to all student households in the fall enrollment packages or in registration packages for students registered later in the school year.
Thank you for supporting this policy.
School may be cancelled when the Superintendent and/or Principal believe the safety of students and employees is threatened by severe weather. A decision to close school will be made as early in the day as possible. School closing announcements will be sent via the Infinite Campus Alert System, as well as broadcast on local television and radio stations and placed on media websites. In the event the district does not close school and conditions in your area are bad, or you think it is unsafe, you, as a parent or guardian, should make your own decision about sending your child to school. If you will be keeping your child home when school is in session, please call the school office and notify them of your decision. Thank you.
