FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL

On the first day of classes, all schools have their specific early dismissal times and therefore, the homeward bound schedule will not apply for this day. We will endeavor to accommodate the schools as best we can but parents should expect some delays.

Please make sure your child is at the stop at least 5 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time.
