GRIZZLY LIFE

To provide the safest and most efficient school bus transportation for our students, we contract all school bus services to a local professional transportation company and provide safety training for all bus monitors. Each bus is staffed by a bus monitor, who works directly under the training and management of the school. Because the safety of our students is of the utmost importance, we have created detailed and comprehensive safety policies and procedures to which our bus monitors, drivers, students, and parents must strictly adhere to ensure the safe transportation of students to and from school. For more information on the bus service and bus registration, please contact our Bus Department.

Address Change Request

If a student’s home address changes during the school year, parents are asked to verify with the BusDepartment that the new address is on our bus route before moving at least 14 days via email. Any change of address made without informing the school in advance could result in the suspension of bus services for that student. In that case, a refund will NOT be given for the current quarter/session but will be provided for the remaining quarters/session if a full year has been paid in advance. Parents will then have to make arrangements for alternative transportation for the remainder of the school year.
