Good evening parents! Due to a loss of a bus driver for bus 276 this week, we are going to need to update ALL our routes on our buses to include the students on bus 276. Please look for a letter to come home tomorrow with your child indicating your bus #, AM/PM pick up and drop off times, and bus stop location. We will need to establish new community stops on other buses to be able to pick up and drop off students with only 2 buses that are running routes. Thank you for your patience as we continue to look for additional bus drivers.

We are so excited to start the new year! This week will be busy and we will all need a little extra patience with our new car rider line and community bus stops. On Monday and Tuesday, we will allow parents to park in the parking lot and walk students to class. Beginning Wednesday, August 31, parents can walk students to the back door. If you choose to do that, please make sure that you park in a parking spot and use the crosswalk. We want to keep everyone safe during this busy time of the day. Thank you for your help!

Dear Parents and Guardians, There was a typo on the Kindergarten postcards that went out this weekend. All Kindergarten students are invited to Meet the Teacher this Friday, August 26 (NOT August 19 as stated). We are sorry for the confusion. See you Friday!

August 19, 2022 Parents- It is almost time to start our new year together! As we continue planning ahead for the upcoming school year and streamlining our bus routes, we have a few new changes. Please read carefully. Starting on Monday, August 29th we will need to adjust the stops for a few of our communities until we fulfill the need of hiring bus drivers. First, all students living in the Grovemont community will be picked up/dropped off at the Grovemont Park. The parents will need to meet at the bus stop in place of doing individual home stops. Also, students living on Dillingham Circle, Jones Cove, Shope Creek, and Bull Creek will now have a community stop at Berea Baptist Church in the AM only. Second, because we will be unable to make home stops at the following addresses, we will have community stops at the intersection of Bee Tree Road and your prospective roads. These streets are Riddle Road, Mountain Crest, Long Branch, Sunset Drive, and Jordan Road (AM only). We appreciate your flexibility as we are adjusting the needs of our routes so we can continue to use our buses for student transportation. Please call the office at 686-3856 if you have further questions.
