C-M District Map

In the interest of student safety there may be times, because of ice, snow or mud, we may use hard surface only routes. The drivers will stop at the intersections listed. In the afternoon, if no one is waiting for the student at the appointed intersection, the driver will bring the student back to the school. Students will not be dropped off at an open intersection without someone waiting to pick them up. Depending on road conditions, bus routes may run late and drivers will alert the bus barn if they are more than ten minutes late. If your bus is more than ten minutes late, please feel free to call the bus barn for an update 597-2979. Listed below are the times and places for your route. We hope this will cause as little inconvenience as possible.
