Bus Delay

Please accept our apologies regarding the transportation issues you have been experiencing recently. Due to a shortage of drivers, we are still expecting delays involving your child's bus route for pick up and drop off times until further notice. At this point, it is only having an impact on Bus 1401. Please be patient with us as we work through this shortage. We will update you when any changes are made.

Reminder about Car Line

Please remember in the morning that cars can use both lanes on the side of the building and will merge into an every other traffic flow when vehicles get to the front of the building. Please review the map for clarification.


Also, please remember that in the afternoon, the OHS entrance is not double lanes (like it is in the morning). It is only one lane in in the afternoons. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.
