This is an important message for students that use the town bus to get to or from school

The town bus does not have flashing red lights, like a school bus, that stops traffic. The size of the town bus obstructs vision for the drivers on the road. You must look both ways before crossing the street. Although pedestrians have the right of way, you still need to make sure the drivers see you so they are able to stop. Please use caution and remain safe.  

Locks can be purchased from the school office
Used $2.00 or New $5.00
