Bus Information and Free & Reduced Lunch Information

I am including a video that helps you get the bus information you need for your child. Also, the second video will walk you through how to fill out the free and reduced lunch application for your student if you are interested!

If you have any questions at all, please call the school office at 479-750-8785. We are happy to help answer any questions at all before the first day of school.

Bus Rider Information & Free/Reduced Lunch Applications

CAR RIDERS - Where do you go this year?

If your child will be arriving at school by car or picked up in the afternoons by car, you will turn down the north entrance of the school that takes you to the BACK of the school! You will drop your child off at the back of the school in the morning and pick your child up at the back of the school in the afternoon. LOOK FOR THIS SIGN so you will know where to turn to get to the back of the school.

Car riders may begin unloading at the back of the school at 7:15 a.m.

Reminder: The tardy bell will ring at 7:45 a.m. At that point, parents will have to drive to the front of the school and check their child in.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, NO parents or visitors will be allowed in the school even on the first day. All parents (with the exception of Pre-K parents) will have to remain in their cars and drop their child off then leave. We promise to get them to their classrooms safely!!!

Pre-K, Buses & Visitor Entrance Only

The entrance next to the school sign is for Pre-K Parents, School Buses and Visitor Parking Only.

If you are dropping off a car rider, you need to use the north entrance and drive to the back of the school. Staff members will be there to help you unload.

Each car rider will receive a new car rider tag this year with a number posted on the front. Parents need to display this car rider tag on the rearview mirror of their car in the afternoons. Parents without a car rider tag will have to go to the front office and present ID to check out their child.

If your family needs an additional car rider tag, they are for sale in the school office for $1 per additional car rider tag.
