Activity Bus

The Activity Bus is free of charge and does not require a signed parental permission slip. The Activity Bus typically leaves campus at 3:45 PM and follows a route to return students home. It's important to note that the Activity Bus has "area stops", which differ from a student's assigned stop. Please click on the icon above to access this school year's Activity Bus stops. Note: Students that ride bus 13, 7, 8, and portions of 14 will ride the elementary buses serving that area.

In order to ride the bus, the student will select "elem/activity bus" from the dropbox on the activity form prior to 1:00 PM on the day of the activity. If a student rides the bus without signing up a discipline referral will result, with potential consequences including, but not limited to detentions and/or a loss of activity bus privileges.
