Change in late afternoon activity bus transportation

To Middle School and High School Parents/Guardians: Last year, the district provided an Activity Bus that transported students home following afternoon school activities. The bus typically left schools at 4:30 p.m. Due to a change in school dismissal times, there WILL NOT be an Activity Bus offered to transport middle and high school students back home this fall. NOTE:  The Shuttle Bus that transports students to school-sponsored co-curricular and athletic practices immediately after school WILL CONTINUE to run between middle schools and high schools.  See Shuttle Bus Schedule HERE. This fall, we will monitor and evaluate the need to offer busing to transport students home from these activities and will notify parents/guardians of any changes. Thank you and have a great school year! Jackie Johnston Community Education Director Eastern Carver County... read more
