PTA: Back to School Party
In an effort to reduce bus route times, we are asking parents who are registered for bus service but do not need or intend to use bus service to opt out of bus service. If a student lives 1.5 miles or more away from school they are entitled to free bus transportation. Unless a family notifies us that they do not want transportation, their children are placed on a bus route. Some families do not want to use transportation and choose to transport their children to and from school themselves. If we remove students from bus routes that are NOT going to use district transportation, we can reduce bus route times by eliminating the bus stopping at that assigned bus stop. At present, the bus stops at all assigned stops on the route and waits 3 minutes for the students to board the bus. If there are no students at that stop, the bus still waits for 3 minutes before moving onto the next stop.
If you DO NOT want your child or DO NOT need your child to use district transportation, please fill out this google form so we can remove your child(ren) from that route. You may only need transportation one way, either to or from school. Please fill out the form and indicate which route you do NOT need transportation.
If your child(ren) is assigned to a route and you wish to continue using district transportation, you do NOT need to fill out this form. The form is ONLY for families that do NOT need transportation.
The PTA is proposing to increase membership fees by $2.00 starting October 1st. A vote will be held during our first general membership meeting in September. But it's not too late to get the "early bird discount"! Join the PTA now using this link and pay just $10, as membership fees may increase to $12 starting October 1st. Being a part of the PTA allows a parent to volunteer to help with school events, after school parties, to be a room parent, as well as allows parents to attend meetings and help partake in different activities throughout the year. Come join the fun!
