NEW TO THE LIBRARY -

Thank you for your patience as parents and district buses safely transport students to and from school and all year long.
The district now manages its own bus fleet. Call the Transportation Department at 952-556-6160 for things like: daily riding pattern changes, concerns about bus safety, lost and found items, or if our child’s bus is more than 10 minutes.
Families who use district transportation can use the MyStop app to track the progress of their student's bus.
Transportation Notices and Changes- If you plan to make a last minute transportation change during the school day- please contact the office at 952-556-6600. DO NOT call or e-mail the classroom teacher. Teachers are working with students and are unable to check their e-mail.
