If you haven't already, check out The Ambush Vol 2 article on our MS and HS JAG Program! The JAG Program is a career exploration and preparation program/class that gives students access to job attainment skills utilizing a hands-on approach.
We are excited that this year our NEW 2024 Route Buses have AIR CONDITIONING! We are excited to give our kids a more comfortable trip to and from school.
We also want to thank you for your patience with our buses and bus riders as we start a new school year. Our rider numbers at the beginning of the year usually vary from morning/afternoon as drop off/pick ups change, changes of student addresses over the summer we don't know about, and more riders until the after school program begins.
We have another bus and driver ready to go in the event that a bus would begin nearing capacity and we need to run another route. The morning pick up and afternoon drop off times also usually become shorter as students and drivers get used to the stops and routes over the next week or so.
We would like to thank Mrs. Stephanie Hamilton and Mr. Kenny Tiefenauer who do an outstanding job in getting our buses and routes ready to go over the summer and each school day.
Again thank you for your patience. If you have any issues or questions with your route, please contact our Transportation Director or speak with your child's building office.
We are all in this together! We thank you for your understanding.
