What is the criteria for buses from home to school?

The district provides transportation only to those students living outside a one-mile radius, unless the district has reviewed walk routes and determined no safe walk route is available. Within that boundary, our practice allows for elementary students to walk up to one and a half miles to school. Students with walk distances that exceed these limits are eligible for bus service.

What is the school's capacity?

Our new school will have 30 classrooms for a total capacity of 690 students.

How do I sign up to receive updates about the school?
