School Supply List
At the beginning of every school year, your child’s bus stop automatically defaults back to your home address. Therefore, if your child will be riding the bus to a location other than your home address (a sitter, grandparents, etc.), you must fill out a “Request for Bus Change” form and return it to the office ASAP so the change can be made. Please remember that Imlay City Schools abides by the “One Stop Bussing” policy. If you have any questions regarding our bussing policy, please feel free to contact us.
Our transportation department has a link on the website to check your child’s bus routes for the school year. The page is: https://www.icschools.us/departments/transportation/routes. The routes for the 2021-2022 school year will be posted by the end of the day on August 13th.
As a reminder, it is still a mandate that students who ride the bus wear a face mask.
Peanut Restriction Policy
When deciding if a particular item is safe to bring to school, please use these helpful tips:
It is OKAY to bring if the food label says:
· “Processed in a facility that also processes peanuts”
· “Processed on a machine that also processes peanuts”
It is NOT OKAY to bring if the food label says:
· “May contain traces of peanuts”
· “Contains peanuts”
· “May contain peanuts”
