MS Busing Drop Off/Pick Up Change
Beginning Monday, October 27 through the end of the school year we will be having our Middle School busing situation altered due to construction scheduled to begin soon at the Middle School. Busing pick up and drop off will be on the west side of the Middle School at/near the SW doors leading into the cafeteria. Parents should drop students off on the east side of Main Street to avoid crossing in front of traffic. Thanks for your patience and understanding during this project.
