SCHOOL BUS SAFETY WEEK

National School Bus Safety Week is recognized during the week of October 21 - 25. We are very thankful to our drivers who continue to provide safe and dependable transportation to and from school each day.


Here are a few tips for keeping your child safe on the bus:

  • Remind your child to keep items inside their backpack riding to and from school to avoid any unneeded distractions.
  • No food or drink should be consumed on the bus.
  • Leave plenty of time to get to the bus stop so you are not running to chase or catch the bus.
  • Walk in crosswalks or on sidewalks, not next to, near, or around them.
  • Always have children notify the driver if they drop or lose an item while entering or exiting the school bus. Stopping to try to pick the item up can be a very risky behavior.
  • Emphasize the importance of staying seated at all times when the bus is moving.

SCHOOL FEES

Notices are sent to families owing money for the following:
  • Lost or damaged library books
  • Damages to chromebooks
  • Breakfast/Lunch Balance

Please contact the school office or Food Service if you have any questions about any of these charges. It is important for you to know that the balances of any fees owed to D200 are carried over to subsequent years. If a payment plan is needed, we can work with you to help. Thank you for your cooperation!
