Transportation "Need to Know"
1.  The transportation handbook is in every child's handbook/planner, as well as on the transportation department webpage.
2.  A home address and one alternate address is all that is allowed. Bus passes for the alternate address must be requested through the child's school office by noon.
3.  All children, 2nd grade and younger must have a parent/guardian visible at the bus stop at drop off time. After three times of not having a parent visible, the child will lose bus riding privileges.
4.  If you live in town, check the new bus stop map. Bus stops have been reduced but not eliminated.
