Kindergarten Students


Kindergarten students will not be dropped off at a bus stop unless a parent or guardian is at the bus stop waiting for the child.  If no one is at the stop, the child will be returned to the school following the completion of the bus run.  A parent may notify the school that this service is not necessary.  The bus driver will then be notified.
