Important Transportation Notification

Dear Families,

We would like to make you aware of a policy addition adopted by our Board of Education on November 10, 2016 that went into effect on January 3, 2017. Parents of students who ride busses will no longer be able to make transportation changes after 1 p.m. each day. This means if your child normally rides the bus or the shuttle and you need to pick him/her up for an appointment you will need to either send in a note or call the office by 1 p.m. each day.

While we recognize that coordination of transportation for your child is challenging, we believe that the implementation of this policy is essential to ensure student safety at dismissal time.  You can find the new policy language set forth below.  As this is a board policy, building principals will be required to enforce it and refer those in violation to the Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Patricia Kilburn.  Please be respectful of the policy by notifying the school of transportation changes by 1 p.m. each day.

Thank you for your cooperation in facilitating a safe and efficient dismissal.


Mrs. Abbey North,  Principal
Glebe Street Elementary School
