Due to the weather over the last 2 weeks, we have been unable to complete the seal and striping project to the north parking lot on the HS/MS campus. As shown in the attached image, there is a barrier set up in the middle of the lot and the east side of the lot is blocked off waiting for the 2nd coat of sealing and then striping. We would like parents to enter the lot the same as last year for dropping students off. Drop off at doors 7 and 8. And then turn right to exit along the north road next to the solar field. Students will enter any 1 of the 3 one way lanes for student parking. Staff can park behind the building or in the south lot. Thank you for your patience while we complete the project and have a great first day of school.
It is almost time for the first day of school and we are gearing up and excited for the new year to start. We are proud to introduce a new app for parents and students to be able to use to help bus pick up and drop off times. Click this link to find instructions on how to download the Versatrans My Stop app to your phone. Once downloaded, you will need your student's ID number which is found on the front page when you log into Harmony. When logged in you will be able to see your student's bus number, scheduled pick up and drop off time, and time to arrival to your house in real time. You will also be able to see where the bus is located when the bus is in route. Feel free to download and set up the app on your phone but know we will be making adjustments to the routes for the first week or so. We hope that this will give you more information about the safe transport of your students from home and school. Have a great year, Dr. Terry Tippin, Director of Operations

This morning at approximately 7:40 it was reported over the radio by a school bus driver that there was a gun on the bus. Safety protocols were followed, no students or adults were in danger at any time, and all students were delivered to school safely. The student was a lower elementary student who told another student he had a gun in his backpack. That student followed training and reported immediately to the bus driver who controlled the situation. As it turns out, the gun was a broken airsoft gun. Kudos to the students on the bus who did as they were taught and especially to the bus driver who handled the situation calmly and safely.
