Transportation to the Green

 Please be aware that the transportation schedule to the Green will be changing beginning Monday, August 14th. There will now be two bus runs to the Green to take students to practices.

Run 1- Students who have practice beginning immediately after school will depart from school by 3:05 pm each day. No other students may take the 3:05 pm run to the Green for any reason.

Run 2- A second bus run to the Green will leave school at 4:30 pm Monday thru Thursday and at 4:00 pm on Friday for those athletes whose practices begin between 5:00 pm and 5:30 pm. These students must go to one of the designated areas at school where supervisions is provided (media center or the cafeteria).

Please talk to and explain how this to your daughters so that they understand which bus run they should take each day depending on her scheduled practice or game schedule.
