Church Basement Ladies tickets available

The Bus Safety Committee recently met to go over details about the school year and check on schedules and routes. A new rule for this year involves students riding different buses or being a guest rider on a bus. It will be required of the parent or guardian of the child wanting to ride a different bus or visit a friend on a certain route to have a written note of permission to ride that bus. The note will be given to the driver when boarding the bus. No note – no riding.

Another option is to e-mail staff with questions and to sign-up. Addresses are on the school website.
