 Transportation Services/Geeting Home Each Day

Make sure your child knows how she/he is getting home each day. If plans change, please text your child. Students are permitted to turn on their phone at the end of each day, when instructed, to see if any messages were sent to them during the day. I would suggest that you request a reply text from your child to ensure the child received the message.
