Starting this year, students who selected they will be riding a bus this year during online registration will need to login to the Parent Portal to see bus information. Bus letters will no longer be mailed out. For those who have completed online registration by August 12, bus information will be viewable on August 18 in the Parent Portal. Those who have not completed online registration by this date will experience a lag in being able to view transportation details in the Parent Portal.
If you do not see any bus information in the Parent Portal August 18, 2020, please call the Transportation Department at 417.732.3680. Information is updated nightly in the Parent Portal.
Due to the volume of students being routed, bus stop locations and times need to be adjusted, so please check the day before school starts for the most up to date bus stop information. Questions regarding transportation can be directed to 417-732-3680.
Please refer to the Traffic Flow Map on the building's website under "Resources" for drop-off and pick-up procedures. Building doors will be opened at 8:10 a.m. each morning. Please do not drop children off at the building prior to 8:10 a.m. Students are not permitted to wait outside or in the foyer of the building prior to 8:10 a.m. Adults will be present outside when the 8:10 a.m. bell rings. Students may only be dropped off from the main car line. Parents are also welcome to park and walk students to the building.
Please do not allow students to walk across the parking lot unattended.
School will be dismissed Monday - Thursday at 3:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Friday. Students may be picked up from the main car line or the parent pick-up line at the front door. Please wait outside of the building if you choose to use the parent pick-up line at the front door. If you choose to pick your child up from the pick-up line at the front of the building, please have the pick-up sign in hand to show the educators at the front of the building. In order to decrease congestion, please do not line up prior to 3:15 p.m. It is our goal to get students with families within 13-15 minutes.
