Morning Routes K1758 & K1315

Thank you for your patience in these first weeks of school as we continue to work with the Office of Pupil Transportation (OPT) to provide your students with a safe mode of transportation to and from school.

We are aware that the delay in the school bus arrivals of routes K1758 and K1315 have adversely affected your mornings. The OPT has agreed to make some changes to the routes to ensure that (1) the buses arrive in a timely manner and (2) that our students arrive to school on time.

The changes to our morning routes, shown below, will go into effect on:

Monday, September 19th

In the meantime, please continue to expect significant delays on the morning routes. If possible, please take advantage of our early morning drop-off to ensure your family starts their day on time. Early morning drop-off starts at 7:45 am in the MPR, located on the 10th floor.
