Express Buses - We are happy to report that there will be express buses picking up seniors for the later start time. Below is the
information that you will need to ride the express bus on October 15. Please make sure you note the location and time. These buses will
leave promptly and will not provide door-to-door service. It is the student’s responsibility to be at the locations specified.
If your senior is unable to use the express bus, they have the option of riding their regular bus and arriving at school the normal time.
However, since there is testing going on, the expectation is that they will have work to do and be in either the Library or Learning Center.
