When you support our schools, you reinforce a number of valuable messages for your child, such as responsibility, accountability, respect for rules and respect for others.  

As educators, our goal will always be to work together with you to create an educational environment which enables every child to grow successfully into adulthood.

We welcome your involvement and we encourage you to take the following actions to ensure your child is successful in school:

  • get acquainted with educators who have the responsibility of teaching your children;
  • learn how  your schools operate and are funded;
  • learn what is being taught to your children, and;
  • lend a helping hand with student activities supervision..

Bus Stop Responsibilities

Waiting riders should wait on the sidewalk or off the main traveled portion of the roadway.  The designated waiting area, when possible, should be 20 feet back from the edge of the roadway to increase protectino from traffic movement.  Riders should wait until the bus has stopped completely before approaching the bus.  Riders should not enter or leave from the rear of the bus unless an emergency evacuation is required.  Riders should make a conscientious effort to be seen by the bus driver as they approach or leave a designated bus stop.
