PrinciPAW's Corner

Shreve Island is such a wonderful and unique school. One thing that makes us unique is that with nearly 750 students, we only use three Caddo school buses! Therefore, Shreve Island has very long carpool lines. We are proud that our well-developed carpool procedures gets over 400 students safely loaded in cars and on their way by 3:15 PM. I want to sincerely thank you parents for your patience and cooperation in following the carpool rules. Though it is often tempting to circumvent the line, abiding fairly by these rules sets a great example for our students. This issue of Bulldog Bites is dedicated to helping clarify these guidelines. If you have any questions about how to correctly get through carpool, please call the school.
