This morning we received updated stop times from the district’s Transportation Department for several stops on Bus 182’s route. An e-mail was sent to parents of students that ride Bus 182 with the adjusted stop times. If you did not receive this e-mail, please contact the school if you need to verify the updated stop time. If your child is in grade K-3, please be ready for the bus approximately 10 minutes ahead of the estimated stop time in case the bus is running early. Thank you for bearing with us as bus routes settle during the first weeks of school. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this week arising from issues with stop times.
