Prompt Pick-Up & Drop-Off

Due to the unpredictable nature of traffic in our area, the bus may arrive early or be a few minutes late.

Parents shall be responsible for monitoring Montgomery County Emergency Information sources and buses shall operate during inclement weather conditions unless school is canceled.
