Please remember that students need to be waiting at their bus stop at least five (5) minutes prior to the scheduled time. This ensures that students are not chasing after buses which creates a safety hazard, and helps ensure that students do not miss the bus.
BUS PASSES ARE REQUIRED (pursuant to WAC 392-145-020.7): students may only use their regular established stop unless they have written permission from a parent/guardian to use another location. Please make sure that the school office has a note so that they may issue a pass for the afternoon bus driver.
For KINDERGARTEN bus riders: a parent or guardian (or other designated person) is required to meet kindergarten students when they are dropped off. If you have an older sibling getting off the bus with your child, we must have a signed & dated note giving permission to release your student with the sibling. Riding Yellow Means Going Green!
