Walk, Bike, & Roll to School

Carla Blackmar-Rice (Kramer parent and PTG Volunteer Coordinator) brainstormed some ideas for walking school buses for next school year.  A good first step would be to survey participants about their travel time to school so we could use this in route planning.  Please use this link to fill out information for potential walking school buses for next year.  

Walking School Bus 3-second Survey


Bus Transportation for Next School Year 

All families who live more than two miles from the school & need bus transportation must complete a Transportation Form and turn it in to the school office by June 8th.  A detailed TSD Update for Tier One Transportation & Transportation Form was sent home in your child’s Friday Folder.  

If you have any questions, please contact Transportation at:
