In an effort to have our schools open next week, we have developed a bus schedule that will hopefully only have to be implemented for the week of December 7-11, 2020. There will have to be double runs in order to provide students with transportation to and from school. The times listed will be arrival times at schools in the morning, and departure times from school in the afternoon. 2nd wave bus students should plan to be at their bus stops 15 minutes after their normal time. We are asking parents who can transport their own students to school next week, to do so in order to help out with this transportation challenge. Please check your email to view the schedule. Thank you.
