Important Information For Parents of Kindergartners

Kindergarten students must be accompanied to and from bus stops by an authorized person. Your child will not be released to any authorized person(s) unless a valid government/state ID is presented to the bus driver daily.

Your child will be returned to the school if there is no authorized person at the bus stop or the designee does not have a valid government/state ID.

Students returned to the school must be picked up within one hour or other county agencies will be notified.
