Note from the Transportation Department:

As the District approaches the end of September, the Transportation Department would like to thank everyone for their support and patience as bus drivers familiarize themselves with the new routes and heavier and longer bus loads for this school year. As we near the end of September, your bus driver's daily arrival and drop-off should be consistent, within five minutes. For parents looking in Infofinder, if you find actual pick-up and drop-off times are different than those posted in Infofinder, the actual times the bus arrives at your home are your most accurate guidance. (The times in Infofinder are calculated and may vary from actual times based on ridership, weather, and other factors.)

Children need healthy meals to learn. The Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District offers healthy meals every school day. For the 2022-23 school year, breakfast costs $1.80 and lunch costs $3.05.

Your family may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. Fill out the application below to see if your family qualifies.
