Yellow Bus Eligibility Update (Gr 7 and 8)

Dear Parents/Guardians of incoming 7th and 8th graders,

The Office of Pupil Transportation originally said that the new variance/exception forms would be available June 15. However, the 2017-2018 form is still listed. The school reached out to them and we were just notified that they will allow the old form to be use.  We would still recommend to cross out 2017-2018 and put 2018-2019 on the upper right hand corner of the variance form.
