  • Arrival And Departure Information



    Buses will begin arriving at school at 7:35. Buses will pick up students on the farthest routes first. The limit of riders on the bus has been drastically reduced. Once the student limit is reached, the bus driver will bring those students to school and will go back and get the students where he/she left off to complete the pickup route.


    The first bus is scheduled to leave at 2:35. 

    For example: example: If the student comes in on the first shift of 19-40, then he/she will leave on the last shift of bus 19-40 at the end of the day. This will allow the bus drivers to begin with the shortest route going home so that they can return to school quicker.

    The State of Alabama requires all students in Grades 2-6 to wear a mask on the bus and at school. 

    If your child cannot wear a mask due to a medical condition, you must provide a doctor’s excuse.




    Car riders will begin unloading at 8:00 a.m.



    Car riders will begin dismissal at 3:00.

    Please remember: Parents will not be able to park on campus, exit vehicles, or enter the buildings with students. We will assist each student to his/her classroom.
