Back to School Memo from the Principal's Office

Dear Families,

I hope this finds you and your family soaking up some of this beautiful sunny weather! Before I leave for summer break, I wanted to share some key Back-to-School information with you. This is not the be-all and end-all source by any means. These are just some of the basic things that I start to think of as a parent myself about the time school supplies show up in the Target aisles. So tuck this in your back pocket, enjoy your summer, and pull this out once the Back-to-School stuff starts popping everywhere. I can’t wait to see you in our school building! You have been missed! Sincerely, Dr. Sarah Lucero

Bus Transportation

Bus route times will be posted on Ride 360 no later than the day before the first day of school. Returning families, please keep your child's white bus card to use on the first day of school.


Did you know that our buses have equipment allowing Ride 360 to use GPS geolocation to let users know when to expect their bus each day. This portal allows parents and students to access their own secure data for bus stop location, route, and pick-up time via the web or app.

Setup and management are simple, and routing information is easily accessible by parents and students. The links below provide more information about using the mobile app or website to track your bus.

Student ID numbers are required when registering, so student information is confidential. Bus information is specific to each student and accessible only to that student and parent (with the option to share).

*For the best experience on the mobile app, please ensure you have the latest version installed.

Masks

Masks will be optional. We will respect and support the decision each family makes based on their circumstances.
