COVID-19 Busing Policies

 

Due to the Covid-19 and the bus seating arrangements, students may not switch between the buses.  As you know, safety is our number one priority.  We have seating charts in place for contact tracing purposes in the unfortunate event that we would ever need to use them.  If your student wants to go home with another student who rides a different bus, they will need to be picked up at the school.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.  Please contact Jill Kettlewell at 231-495-1115 with any questions.
