TRANSPORTATION

STUDENT DROP OFF/PICK UP: All students should be dropped off and picked up behind the Forum. No student should enter or exit a vehicle in the main driveway on campus, loading dock area, bus lane, or near the ramp area outside of Trainer Matt’s Office. This is a serious safety issue. If your son is on crutches, he may be dropped off at the Forum utilizing a handicap parking spot. Those students not adhering to this safety rule will be referred to Mr. Hale.

Only those students with a purple bus pass or voucher may ride the bus at any time. Our bus schedule is also posted at this location.
