Regular bus service is provided. Buses are disinfected twice daily. Bus routes can be accessed through Parent Portal. Face coverings will be worn by students and drivers. Masks are available to accommodate students. Students from the same households are asked to sit together. Buses are filled from back to front and can operate at capacity under the new guidelines. As students enter the bus, the driver records their names for purposes of contact tracing. All buses are equipped with surveillance cameras. These cameras have been instrumental in contact tracing, as well as identifying students who are noncompliant with wearing their masks. These students are referred to the deans for disciplinary action.
After-school bus service is available at each campus between 3:00 - 3:15 p.m. for students attending Porter Assistance and Connection Time. Pick up will be at Door #4 (Cafeteria Entrance) at East Campus, and at Door #3 (Gym Entrance) at Central. Please advise your child to communicate with the Bus Drivers about where they need to go, so they are getting on the correct bus.
Activity buses are available at each campus at daily 5:30 p.m. and depart promptly at 5:45 p.m. The pickup locations are the same as the bus for Porter Assistance and Connection Time. Please advise your child to communicate with the Bus Drivers about where they need to go, so they are getting on the correct bus.
Students waiting for their activity or sport after school dismissal are allowed to sit in the Cafeteria at East Campus and in the Cafeteria at Central Campus. Students must not congregate while waiting. Students may not leave campus at dismissal and return for their activity or sport before 3:00 p.m.

Effective immediately, due to limited student parking with students in full attendance beginning on April 12, only students who have purchased Student Parking Permit Stickers will be permitted to park on campus.
Seniors may still purchase a parking permit. Permits for the remainder of the year are $21.00 and can be purchased via e-Pay (please select Miscellaneous Payment, type Parking Permit in the memo, enter a payment amount of $21.00) or at the Cashier's Office located in the East Cafeteria beginning on April 12.

Juniors with proof of valid driver's license can submit their names to the Dean's Office for the junior lottery. Lottery winners will be announced after April 19. Students parking on campus without a permit will be subject to disciplinary action.
Prorated refunds will be issued for permits purchased earlier in the year. Individuals who paid $100 for a parking permit will be refunded $54. Refunds will be issued in the same manner in which they were paid. Processing will begin the week of April 12.
