2021 Kindergarten Bus Orientation

  • Every year we look forward to meeting our new kindergartners. Our Annual Kindergarten School Bus Orientation is 90 minutes of hands-on learning how to be safe on and around a school bus. Our goal is to not only teach safety, but to ease any first day fear of the bus.

    Please schedule your date and time in advance. Session dates and contact information are listed below (please keep siblings home, when possible). All parents and students must wear a mask throughout the duration of the orientation; if you do not have a mask, one will be provided (while supplies last). Plan on arriving 20 minutes prior to start time for registration. We will not be able to accommodate late arrivals.
