GAME BUS UPDATE
With a continued shortage of bus drivers, Krapf is struggling to find drivers for sports & school runs. Drivers are doing double duty, which means many sports trips will have very early dismissals. On some longer routes, Krapf will be asking for noon departures which will require 11:40am dismissals from class. This impacts 7th grade lunches. We will work to coordinate with Aramark to have boxed lunches available if needed and some students will have to eat on the bus as they travel to away games.
Please use this link and see instructions if you prefer to drive your child to an away game rather than use the bus:
We understand that none of this is ideal and it is doubtful that much will change in the near future. We appreciate your understanding, flexibility and patience as we work to do our best for our student-athletes.
