To make changes in your child's transportation, send a note or email to your teacher at the beginning of the day (must be in writing, not verbal). Remember that your child's teacher only checks email once during the day because our priority is teaching the children. Teachers can only check email and make calls when the students are gone to PE/Art/Music. Thank you for understanding.

Emergency changes in transportation should be rare. They must also be given in writing. You may email them to secretaries, fax to the school, or hand deliver to the office.
