    Students are reminded that bus passes should be used for necessary or emergency reasons only. Please use the district wide daily bus pass form, do not send handwritten notes. Forms are available at anytime from the district webpage or in the front office. With the new bus reconfiguration, seating is limited therefore students should not obtain bus passes for parties, sleepovers, etc., with several students. Parents should make arrangements to pick up students in these types of situations. Students in 4th & 5th grades will continue to need a note from their parent to ride home with other students to give to their homeroom teacher.
