Announcements and Important Information
Bus Route Information
Posted bus routes and pick-up and drop-off times are approximate. Please remember that traffic, weather and other unforeseen circumstances may cause some routes to be early or delayed. Also, as students choose not to ride or to ride the bus during the school year, pick-up and drop-off times are adjusted. For example, the elimination of just one bus stop (because students no longer ride or are absent from stop on a particular day) can affect a route by 2-3 minutes. It is recommended that parents and students arrive at their bus stops at least five (5) minutes prior to the published times.
Note: Parents/guardians of students on choice transfer/variance or in-district transfer will be responsible for providing student transportation to and from school. Bus passes will not be approved for the 2020-2021 school year.
Rescheduled Picture Day Information
Read 4 Adventure Program
Our friends at High Trek Adventures understand how important it is to be encouraging young
people to develop strong reading habits. They also know the value of getting the youth outside
to enjoy the beautiful PNW. With that in mind, they have partnered with us to offer a voucher for
those who complete 8 hours of recreational reading minutes during the month of March.
Students can earn their choice of a Ropes Course or Laser Tag Adventure (valued up to $40) or
a discounted Summer Camp Voucher (valued at $50). Please see below for the attached Reading Log for more information about High Trek Adventures and the vouchers they will be offering.
The Read 4 Adventure program will run through the month of March. Have your student record
their minutes on the Reading Log as they go. The goal is 480 minutes! Then beginning April
1st, you can submit your student’s minutes and voucher request online using the Student
Submission Link on the Reading Log. Contact Read 4 Adventure Program
