After School Shuttle Bus News
I am very pleased to announce that with the help of the Carol White Physical Education Program (PEP) Grant we will be increasing our After-school Shuttle Bus service from two to four days a week. We hope that by providing this service on a more consistent basis we will have an increased number of students involved in after-school sports and activities. This change should provide support for students who may otherwise have no transportation and for parents who may have work schedule conflicts. The buses will run Monday through Thursdays. For your convenience, There is a link below for a listing of drop off locations and times of the buses. If you have any questions please call Alyce Cavanaugh, PEP grant liaison @ 778-2951 or our Transportation office @ 778-4307.
