Drop Off:

Begins at 7:20-7:45, please drop students off at the back of the building (see map below). Cars pulling around to the front of the building causes the buses to be held up. We appreciate your cooperation with this matter.


Please check the Johnston SunRise for bus schedules in the upcoming weeks.


In the upcoming weeks you will be receiving a letter in the mail with information regarding the Aspen Portal and parent/student log in information.

If your student's 504 will be reviewed after January 1st meeting invites will be mailed late December.
