  • Starting next Tuesday, September 5, there will be a late bus leaving at 3:15 on all Tuesdays and Thursdays for the rest of the school year. Students must make arrangements with a teacher in advance in order to stay with a teacher. The only time you do not need to make arrangements in advance is if you stay in the library until 3:00. Students taking the late bus must get a late bus pass from the teacher that they are staying with and present it to the bus driver as they board the bus. If a teacher releases you before 3:10 then you must gather in the front lobby until the 3:10 bell sounds. At that time you would walk to the Kelley St. side of the building to board the bus there. Students staying after school must be with an adult and not roaming the halls. This is a great opportunity for you to spend some extra time with a teacher or in one of the other many activities that will be announced in the coming weeks.
