Occasionally, it becomes necessary for the District to cancel the Kindergarten bus runs and to keep morning Kindergarten students at the schools for their safety due to inclement weather conditions. They will be transported home with the other elementary students at the announced dismissal time to their regularly assigned morning pickup bus stop.

Should you have a morning Kindergarten student who is normally transported from school to a babysitter on that day, this student will be transported to the nearest designated PM bus stop closest to his/her babysitter's address. (NOTE: This designated PM bus stop may be the same or different than the student’s regularly assigned Kindergarten run bus stop. Should you have a question regarding this location, please contact your child’s school office.)
