Bus times shall be set during the first week of operation and students are asked to observe the proper time and places of departure. Students who are not attending classes during the school day may lose bus privileges. For those who will not be using a bus, it is very important to remember to use the sidewalks/crosswalks on Park Road so that accidents will be prevented.
