    Due to the amount of students riding each bus, we do not allow students to ride home with friends if it is not their zoned school bus. A driver may also stop a student from getting off at the wrong stop. Please keep in mind that your child’s safety is our utmost concern. In the event of a child care emergency, you can write a note requesting your child ride home on a bus with another student. The note must include the reason and be brought to the office first thing in the morning. If the bus is full, the request will be denied, and we will contact you.
